The Food and Grocery Code of Conduct regulates aspects of trade between grocery retailers and growers. It has rules relating to supply agreements, payments, termination of agreements, dispute resolution and a range of other matters.
The Code is in the process of being reviewed and a Draft Report has been released, details below. vegetablesWA is working with AUSVEG and other state industry associations to develop a response to this report and we’re keen to gather grower views.
Please provide me with any comments about how the Code has affected your dealings with the supermarkets or on the Draft Report either via email or phone (08 9486 7515) by Tuesday the 17th of July.
