The public submission period for the review of the Dairy Industry Code has been extended until August 29.
Agriculture Minister David Littleproud said the two-week extension would allow more input from dairy farmers, processors and industry groups.
“Based on feedback, we’ve extended the public submission period to allow more people to have their say on the Dairy Industry Code,” Minister Littleproud said.
“Extending the submission period will allow greater opportunity for everyone to have their say despite impacts of COVID shutdowns.
“This is part of the first formal review process for the Dairy Industry Code.
“The review will play a critical role in assessing whether the code is operating as intended and delivering the outcomes the dairy industry needs.
“The mandatory Dairy Industry Code was introduced on January 1, 2020, to ensure a fairer go for dairy farmers.
