Australian Vignerons welcomes the announcement of a grower survey from the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) into business practices within the wine grape industry.
The ACCC survey comes following reports from growers about delayed harvesting in 2018. This is just one issue growers face, with the ACCC survey looking to learn about a whole range of issues in the industry.
Over many years, Australian Vignerons has maintained a active voice to the ACCC to build a strong working relationship. As an organisation, AV has long campaigned on the behalf of growers to ensure they are receiving a fair go.
Australian Vignerons CEO, Anna Hooper says 'The announcement of the survey for growers to have their say about the industry is a fantastic step forward. The ability for growers to share their concerns directly with the ACCC is something none of us should take for granted. I encourage everyone to get online and fill out the survey as soon as possible.'
Growers have until August 10 to complete the survey which is available on the ACCC website.
