ACCC considers dairy industry scrutiny

AAP logoAAP 18/08/2016

Dairy farmers and milk processors may come under scrutiny from the consumer watchdog amid growing concerns about issues in the industry.

Australian Competition and Consumer Commission chairman Rod Sims told the ABC while he didn't want to pre-empt any decision, the dairy industry was "a very strong candidate" for the next major agriculture review, likely to start in November.

The commission is already investigating several specific issues surrounding Murray Goulburn and Fonterra's decisions to slash milk prices and clawing back the difference from farmers.
