- The Horticulture Code of Conduct is a mandatory industry code prescribed under the Competition and Consumer Act 2010.
- The code’s aim is to improve clarity and transparency of trade between growers and traders.
- The code requires all trade in horticultural produce to have a horticulture produce agreement.
- Growers and traders must deal in good faith, and failure to do so can lead to penalties.
We regularly conduct random compliance checks. We also investigate alleged breaches of the code.
