Feedback wanted from Gippsland dairy farmers on Dairy Code of Conduct
Local MP Darren Chester is encouraging Gippsland dairy farmers to have their say on the Dairy Code of Conduct.
Mr Chester said the Code of Conduct was introduced at the beginning of 2020 to address market imbalances in the industry and was about to undergo its first review. "Feedback is an essential component of the review and will inform decisions to improve the code," Mr Chester said.
You can now provide feedback on the effectiveness of the Code and the terms and conditions it entails
Stronger business environment
Mr Chester said, "The code helps to give a fair go for dairy farmers and a stronger business environment. I encourage local farmers to provide feedback to ensure the code is operating efficiently and producing the desired outcomes."
Mr Chester said the Dairy Code Review Reference Group will support the first review of the code. "The reference group includes farmer and processors representatives from across the eight dairy regions."
Support to dairy farmers
Mr Chester also said, "To ensure a well rounded and informed code is implemented it is important to hear about all different experiences and issues faced within the industry. It is important the industry and government work together to support farmers and safeguard the industry."
Public submissions can be lodged until August 15, 2021. For your submission, please visit the code of conduct review.
