THERE’S an awful lot of noise being made right now about the prices every day Australians are being charged at the checkout, whilst the big supermarkets rake-in record profits.
Added to this political rhetoric driven by the cost-of-living crisis is an apparent concern about the need to ensure Australian farmers receive their fair share of the retail dollar.
All this talk about a fair go for farmers and pricing fairness might sound fantastically good to the innocent observer.
It seems not all farmers are worth worrying about when it comes to the prices they receive.
In addition, there’s no mention by the prime minister and treasurer – amid all this noise about fair farmgate returns – of the fact they’re planning to introduce a new 10 percent biosecurity tax on all Australian farmers, which will come directly off our bottom lines.
