Senate Select Committee on Supermarket Prices

The Senate Select Committee on Supermarket Prices has announced an initial set of dates to hear from industry participants who supply the supermarkets, either directly or indirectly.

Hearings have been held in Hobart (7th March), Orange (12th March) and Melbourne (13th March) with further dates to be announced at the discretion of the Committee.

Growers and winemakers with evidence of unfair, unethical, or anticompetitive practices are encouraged to add their voice to those across the spectrum of primary producers providing evidence to the inquiry.

Given the potential sensitivities and fear of commercial ramifications around giving evidence publicly, the Committee will, where requested, make arrangements for individuals to provide evidence on a confidential basis from their home or office via secure video link to Parliament House.

This Senate inquiry, along with the current review of the Food and Grocery Code and ACCC inquiry into supermarkets, along with public concern for supermarket suppliers’ welfare and a government showing a willingness to act, offers a rare opportunity to make sensible reforms that will rebalance the relationship between supermarkets and their suppliers.
