We are gathering information from a range of stakeholders including grocery retailers, suppliers, farmers, growers, wholesalers, importers, consumer organisations, consumers, and potential new competitors.
Our market study guidelines describe our general processes to all market studies, including our approach to confidential information and our information gathering powers.
We understand that some of the information stakeholders may want to share with us could be commercially sensitive and highly confidential. Anyone who has information relevant to the study can ask us to keep their identity and/or the information provided confidential and we can discuss any available protections with them.
If confidentiality is a concern, it should be raised when people first contact us so we can discuss their concerns as early as possible.
Further information about how we handle confidential information is covered in the following factsheet.
We will be seeking feedback from interested stakeholders throughout the study.
