Dairy | Saputo warned over alleged failure to publish dairy code agreements on time

Dairy processor Saputo Dairy Australia (Saputo) will review and improve its internal processes after the ACCC concluded it was likely to have breached the mandatory dairy code of conduct by failing to publish its milk supply agreements by the required deadline of 2.00pm on 1 June 2020.

Saputo published the milk supply agreements it intended to offer for the 2020-21 milk season at around 3.00pm on 1 June.

The ACCC investigated the events surrounding Saputo’s failure to publish by the deadline set by the code, and obtained evidence that the delay was caused by a very late technical failure, which Saputo took immediate steps to correct.

Saputo has undertaken to examine its internal processes, review the factors that contributed to the breach and make any necessary changes to ensure it meets the publishing requirements of the dairy code in future.

While the ACCC accepts that this alleged breach was inadvertent, all dairy processors are expected to comply with the code and should ensure they have proper processes in place, as well as legal and technical support, to enable them to meet their publishing requirements.

The ACCC takes dairy code compliance very seriously. Non-compliance with the dairy code may result in the ACCC taking enforcement action, including court proceedings seeking a financial penalty.

More information, including guidance for farmers and processors, can be found at dairy code of conduct.
