Introduction of a baseline for milk supply contracts was flagged by Australian Competition and Consumer Commissions (ACCC) Agricultural Commissioner Mick Keogh, at the breakfast.

“In some respects, the really competitive environment processors have operated in, over the last 15 years, has almost been a race to the bottom,” Mr Keogh said.

“There is a sense amongst some, and I don’t want to generalise, that it would be good to have a baseline agreement in place.”
