Dairy | Littleproud announces dairy code consultations

PARTICIPANTS in Australia’s $3.7 billion dairy industry are being encouraged to take part in important regional consultations to help shape Australia’s first mandatory dairy code.

Agriculture Minister David Littleproud said consultations involving Dairy farmers, processors and representative organisations were planned across major Aussie dairy regions.

“The dairy industry came to me and said they wanted a mandatory code of conduct, so let’s get on with it,” Mr Littleproud said.

It’s not a silver bullet but it’s a good first step. There will be more structural reform to come.

“This process is the first part of making dairy sustainable in Australia. A mandatory code between farmers and processors can help make contracts fairer, more transparent and enforce a dispute resolution process.”

A mandatory dairy code was a key recommendation of the ACCC’s Dairy Inquiry.

Mr Littleproud said staff from the Department of Agriculture would be on the ground from November 8.

“It’s not a silver bullet but it’s a good first step. There will be more structural reform to come,” Mr Littleproud said.

“I want all dairy farmers, processors and interested stakeholders to get involved and get the most out of this code.”

Dairy is Australia’s third largest rural industry, worth almost $3.7 billion in 2016–17.
