“The ACCC is seeking feedback from interested parties on issues across all product and geographical markets in the Australian dairy industry. This inquiry will closely examine the key competition and fair trading issues affecting the dairy industry,” ACCC Chairman Rod Sims said.
“As a formal inquiry, the ACCC will also have the ability to compel information from parties including processors and retailers. Our aim is to present a really clear picture of the issues facing the market today, and make any recommendations to ensure it remains fair and competitive.” ■
