Advocating for members & the industry

The Australian Food and Grocery Council is an independent advocate for the food and grocery supply industry, representing the consensus view of our members on key issues. We engage with Federal, State and Local governments as a trusted advisor to inform them of member needs and other evidence when forming policies.

As the peak industry body for companies that manufacture and supply food and grocery products in Australia, we work with members to enhance global and local market opportunities. To ensure the competitiveness of the local market, we work with members and key stakeholders to find supply chain efficiencies and build collaborative working relationships with retailers. To cultivate fair access to local and global markets, we help reduce the regulatory burden and costs so members can compete more effectively.

“The AFGC offers independent insights on industry issues and helps us understand the impacts for our business.”
