From the Australian Food News website, 17 July,
The Australian Government today released its National Food Plan green paper. The aim is to develop Australia’s first national food plan to integrate all aspects of Government food policy and communication of its strategic direction.
Australia’s Agriculture Minister Senator Joe Ludwig said he expected to receive feedback from around Australia including groups such as farmers, consumers and supermarket groups. “It’s quite diverse and that’s why I wanted to bring together the food plan into a green paper to have that conversation,” he said.
The green paper acknowledges the relationship between supermarkets and suppliers raises concerns for stakeholders. “Supermarkets are where most Australians buy their food and we need to ensure a fair trading environment for suppliers while keeping prices low for families,” Senator Ludwig said.
