Report on prices paid to suppliers by retailers in the Australian grocery industry
Report to the Senate on prices paid to suppliers by retailers in the Australian grocery industry
A Baird Committee recommendation was that the ACCC be empowered, in association with a proposed mandatory code of conduct, to address the ‘general principle of like terms for like customers’.
This principle is viewed differently by the independent wholesalers on one hand and the retail chains and the suppliers’ representative, the Australian Food and Grocery Council, on the other.
This report examines the relevant issues.
