Urgent ACCC meeting for farmers to speak out
FARMERS who feel they have experienced unfair trading are encouraged to attend an urgent meeting in Bundaberg next week, where they can voice their concerns with the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission.
The Agriculture Enforcement Engagement Meeting has been called following the NewsMail's coverage of Bundaberg farmers owed millions of dollars by market produce agents.
Hinkler MP Keith Pitt contacted ACCC Agricultural Commissioner Mick Keogh to organise the meeting.
Earlier this year, Mr Keogh was appointed to identify and make decisions on competition, efficiency, transparency and trading matters in agriculture markets.
The Horticulture Code of Conduct was recently reviewed and the government is currently considering the recommendations.
AGRICULTURE ENFORCEMENT ENGAGEMENT MEETING
WHEN: Tuesday, July 12, from 1pm to 3pm
WHERE: Frangipanis Cafe and Function Room, 9 Enterprise St.
RSVP: firstname.lastname@example.org or on 4153 3007.
