Locals Are Invited To Have Their Say
Member for Wannon, Dan Tehan, is encouraging local dairy farmers, processors and other interested parties to have their say in helping shape Australia's first mandatory dairy code at an upcoming forum in Camperdown on Monday 26th November.
Mr Tehan says “we need farmers and processors in Wannon to have their say and make sure the code will work for them, and our local region,”
“The code will aim to make contracts fairer, more transparent and enforce a dispute resolution process"
Minister for Agriculture David Littleproud said the dairy industry had come to him and requested a mandatory code of conduct.
“Consultations are the first step in the process, and the Department of Agriculture will be in Camperdown talking to local people about what should be in the code on Monday 26th November at the Camperdown RSL.
