CCA skills put to good use on Agriculture Consultative Committee
Cattle Council of Australia’s industry advocacy and leadership skills are to be put to good use in competition and consumer law concerns related to the agricultural sector.
The first committee meeting is due to be held on May 27.
The ACCC’s Agricultural Enforcement and Engagement Unit is undertaking a market study of the cattle and beef sector, examining competition, efficiency, transparency and trading issues.
Submissions on the study’s issues paper close on May 6 with public consultation forums to be held in June.
Submissions are being sought on sales channels, saleyards, contract based sales, transport, closeness of processing competition, availability of services, market entry barriers and processed beef markets.
Draft findings are due to be published in September followed by a consultation period in October and the final report from the ACCC in November.
