Bill on supermarket adjudicator, code of conduct – FGC media response
12 November 2015
NewstalkZB asked FGC for comment on a bill that had been drawn from Parliament’s members’ bill ballot. It was the Commerce (Supermarket Adjudicator and Code of Conduct) Amendment Bill, which is designed to establish an independent supermarket adjudicator to develop a code of conduct for relationships between supermarkets and suppliers. It was in the name of Green MP Mojo Mathers.
Katherine Rich responded: “This is a subject our members have a keen interest in and this is an interesting opportunity for a discussion on it. The Food & Grocery Council continues to closely watch how the Australian grocery code of conduct is bedding in.”
