Federal Member for Wide Bay Llew O'Brien is encouraging local farmers and stakeholders to take part in the discussion that will help improve contracts between farmers and processors.

"We need farmers in Wide Bay to have their say to make sure the code will work for them and our local region," Mr O'Brien said.

"The code will aim to make contracts fairer, more transparent and enforce a dispute resolution process.

"We all know how important the dairy industry is to us here in Wide Bay and this process must lead to better outcomes for dairy farmers."

Minister for Agriculture David Littleproud said the dairy industry had come to him and requested a mandatory code of conduct.

"So let's not waste time – let's get on with it," Minister Littleproud said.

"Consultations are the first step in the process, and the Department of Agriculture will be in town talking to local people about what should be in the code on 21 November at the Gympie RSL.

"This isn't the silver bullet and there's much more to be done, but it's a good start."

More information about the development of the code can be found on the have your say website https://haveyoursay.agriculture.gov.au/

People can register online, email dairycode@agriculture.gov.au or phone 1300 044 940.
