Fresh start for supply chain relationships?

We welcome the ACCC's recommendations, which include a prohibition on unfair trading practices, making the Food and Grocery Code mandatory, and making unfair contract terms unlawful.

Farmers are hoping to hit refresh on supply chain relationships this year and hold bigger players, such as supermarkets, to account. More than a year has elapsed since the ACCC recommended a suite of changes following a landmark inquiry into fresh food supply chains, and while the Australian Government has taken small steps, they are yet to commit to substantive legislative reforms.
