Growers optimistic about new supermarket watchdog

From Morning Report, 7:21 am on 7 July 2022

The Commerce and Consumer Affairs Minister David Clark is confident making supermarkets sign up to an enforceable code of conduct will help ease the pain in Kiwis' pockets.

But the devil may be in the detail and growers of fruit and vegetables want more detail about the new powers the Government is introducing.

John Murphy, a vegetable grower and the chair of Vegetable's New Zealand, said these were good first steps, but he was keen to see how it would  impact the wider supply chain.

He spoke to Morning Report.
