Why we are consulting

The forums will inform the previously announced market study into the cattle and beef industry, examining competition, efficiency, transparency and trading issues across the supply chain. Attendees will have the opportunity to raise their concerns directly with ACCC Commissioners.

The market study is in the early stages, and consultation is ongoing. Anyone who has an issue to raise, but is unable to attend a forum, is encouraged to contact the Market Study team.
