In late 2020 the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) conducted the Perishable Agricultural Goods Inquiry, focusing on:

  • the relative power held by different suppliers in the markets for the supply of perishable agricultural goods (meats, fruit, vegetables, seafood, dairy products, eggs, mushrooms) and;
  • the practices and behaviours of suppliers in the markets for the supply of perishable agricultural goods and the effect those practices and behaviours may have on consumers and the broader economy.

The ACCC’s final report can be downloaded at Perishable agricultural goods inquiry report | ACCC and ACGC’s submission to the inquiry is available at  Australian Chicken Growers’ Council Limited (ACGC).pdf (accc.gov.au)
