3 Questions I would love to ask the ACCC
1) If an Australian grocery retailer introduced a club, whereby the top ten manufacturers in Australia were “invited” to give them 1.5% of sales made through their stores, in addition to existing trading terms, what do the think the impact would be on the FMCG industry in the country and what would the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) do about it?
2) If in addition, both small and large manufacturers alike were “encouraged” to purchase information from a retailer, regardless of whether they needed it or not, what should they do and what would the ACCC do?
3) Is the ACCC going to introduce an effective reporting mechanism that would offer genuine protection to manufacturers who lodge complaints against a retailer and on a practical level how would that hold up when they are in the next range review with the retailer concerned?
