COVID-19 Information for Industry

Important resources for members and the wider industry to aid your response as COVID-19 continues to evolve. Please share your experiences and challenges with the AFGC so that we can continue to support your efforts at this time.

Food & Grocery Code of Conduct

The Food and Grocery Code of Conduct is a legally enforceable, voluntary prescribed code under the Competition and Consumer Act. It aims to deliver more contractual certainty in trading relations between suppliers and supermarkets, encourage the better sharing of risk and reduce inappropriate use of market power across the value chain.

State of the Industry Report

State of the Industry is an annual report commissioned by the AFGC to provide economic indicators for the food and grocery manufacturing sector to inform rational and fact-based analysis and policy.

Events & Education


In response to the Government’s announcement on Friday cancelling mass gatherings and growing concerns expressed by attendees and speakers about the risks of COVID-19, we have made the decision to reschedule Food and Grocery Australia, which was to take place in Melbourne on 27 to 28 May.

The AFGC remain fully committed to Food and Grocery Australia, but we recognise our responsibility to prioritise the health and safety of our guests, speakers and staff.

Attendees will receive further communication once a new date for May 2021 has been confirmed. Tickets already purchased will be valid for the rescheduled Food and Grocery Australia or will be refunded in full, at the attendee’s discretion.

To advise us of your decision about your ticket, or if you have any other questions, please email our Member Engagement and Events Manager,
