The food, beverage and primary production industries are fast moving. Social and cultural change affects consumer behavior which has a direct impact on business models. Animal welfare and sustainable production considerations, for example, are increasingly influencing buyer decisions. More regulation around quality and labelling means no let-up in food safety and product recalls and, at the same time, the requirements of the Modern Slavery Act have necessitated whole-supply-chain reviews. The ACCC’s increasing focus on the Horticulture Code and Unfair Contract Terms has seen producers review their approach to ensure compliance and the removal of the IP exemption to Part IV of the Competition and Consumer Act has reduced protections for many operators in these sectors.
