CONSULTATION: The large ACCC Dairy Consultative Committee will be chaired by former Australian Dairy Farmers (ADF) president Noel Campbell.

The Dairy Consultative Committee will provide a forum for dairy industry representatives across farming, processing and retailing to discuss issues about the implementation of the mandatory Dairy Code of Conduct.
An ACCC spokesperson said it would use the committee to:
“a) work with industry to develop and implement effective education and compliance strategies that will enable market participants to understand their rights and obligations and comply with the Code; and”
“b) collaboratively consider concerns related to the implementation of the Code and how those concerns might be addressed.”
The large committee will be chaired by former Australian Dairy Farmers (ADF) president Noel Campbell and members participating today include:
John Elferink, South Australian Dairyfarmers Association
John Versteden, ADF

As one generation of dairy farmers see retirement on the horizon, who are the next generation farmers taking over the responsibility of feeding the world?
