The AFA were happy to hear that the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission introduced the Food and Grocery Code of Conduct.

However the AFA feels this code of conduct should be rolled out to cover all sectors where there are suppliers and retailers and wholesalers. AFA is aware of members who have experienced the significant imbalance in bargaining power between suppliers and large retailers and wholesalers.

The current code is only applicable to the Food and Grocery sector, the AFA will contact the ACCC on behalf of members who are experiencing issues with their retailers or wholesalers for a confidential discussion.
