ACCC Dairy Inquiry to Hear from Farmers About A$1/L Milk

26 January 2017

AUSTRALIA - The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) is set to hear from dairy farmers about a range of issues contributing to the poor state of the industry, including how farm gate milk prices are determined and dollar-a-litre milk.

Australian dairy farmers have said they are looking forward to telling the ACCC about the issues being faced in their struggling industry.

The ACCC announced it would be holding forums around the country as part of its year-long inquiry into the dairy industry.

Gippsland dairy farmer Marian Macdonald said that for decades, milk processing companies had dictated the price farmers were paid for their milk.
