The Victorian Potato Growers Council - Revocation and Substitution - A91321


The Victorian Potato Growers Council (VPGC) seeks revocation of its authorisation A91048 and substitution of a new authorisation to allow present and future members of the VPGC to collectively negotiate the terms and conditions of supply contracts with processors and other buyers, as well as establish price recommendation for supply of seed potatoes to other potato growers in Australia.

On 25 July 2012 the ACCC granted interim authorisation to VPGC.

On 12 December 2012, the ACCC issued a final determination granting authorisation in respect of the collective bargaining arrangements for five years. The ACCC decided not to grant authorisation in respect of establishing the seed price recommendation. A copy of the determination is available by following the links below. The ACCC's decision will take effect on 22 January 2013.
