AFGC - Food and Grocery Code of Conduct
NGG is working on behalf of the Australian Food and Grocery Council to develop and roll out industry training to support the upcoming Food and Grocery Industry Code of Conduct, which will apply to all grocery suppliers trading with Coles or Woolworths.
The training is designed to ensure that participants understand the benefits and requirements of working under the new code and will include a certification provided by the AFGC upon the successful completion of the assessment component. The legislation is expected to be ratified by all parties in early Feb and come into force under the ACCC at that time.
The implications of the Code are extensive and will be one of the most important changes to the industry in many years. All grocery suppliers are automatically covered so it’s important the you understand your new rights and responsibilities under the code.
