- LaManna Bananas Pty Ltd004 843 556
The LaManna Group companies (LaManna Bananas Pty Ltd, Verona Fruit Pty Ltd and LaManna Bananas (Adelaide) Pty Ltd), acting as horticulture produce agents, occasionally sold growers’ produce between their companies, as part of their distribution of produce across national markets.
The ACCC raised concerns that these transactions were not at arm's length and that the companies may not have, in every case, properly obtained growers' consent, as required under the Horticulture Code of Conduct.
LaManna Bananas Pty Ltd, on behalf of the LaManna Group companies, has undertaken that it will:
- advise potentially affected growers of the ACCC's concerns
- establish a special process to deal with any growers who raise concerns about sales of their produce
- report to the ACCC on any grower's complaint that it could not resolve under that process, and
- implement a trade practices compliance program to help it avoid future code breaches.
