'A lot at steak' for Parliamentary Committee

ON THURSDAY May 23, the House Standing Committee on Industry, Science and Resources will hold a day of public hearings in Sydney as part of its inquiry into food and beverage manufacturing in Australia.

This will be the first of several public hearings the committee will hold across the country to hear from a range of stakeholders, including those from the food and beverage industry, processing, packaging, and recycling businesses, and the research and development sector.

Committee Chair, Rob Mitchell MP, said, “Australian food and beverage products are globally trusted for quality and safety. The public hearing will be an opportunity for the committee to hear about industry needs and aspirations, and discuss what kind of support is needed for Australian food and beverage manufacturers to continue to innovate and grow.”

The committee will conduct further public hearings between late May to August 2024. Further information about the inquiry, including the terms of reference, is available on the committee’s website: aph.gov.au/isr.
