Producer Organisations have the potential to strengthen the position of the primary producer in the supply chain. Officials in my Department have had ongoing engagement with stakeholders in relation to Beef Producer Organisations in the past few years in reponse to queries and at various events nationally.
Progressing and facilitating the formation of Beef producer organisations is one of the key action points of the FoodWise 2025 strategy and has, more recently, been discussed with stakeholders in the context of the Beef Taskforce.
My Department is proactively engaging with and providing guidance to several potential beef Producer Organisations.
