Katter’s Australian Party MP, Shane Knuth, is pushing for ‘fair milk’ logos to be placed on Queensland sold milk produced from farmers who have received a sustainable price.
Late last week MP Knuth introduced the Sustainable Queensland Dairy Production (Fair Milk Price Logos) Bill 2016 into the Queensland parliament, aiming to introduce the logos into law.
“Today, I was honoured to take a big step in helping Queensland’s struggling dairy farmers stay afloat,” MP Knuth wrote on his Facebook after introducing the bill.
“It legislates for fair milk price ‘logos’ to be placed on containers of milk signifying that the farmer who produced that milk received a sustainable price. The logos, which will be region-specific, will give consumers more control and transparency and throw dairy farmers a lifeline,” MP Kunth said.
The Bill has now been referred to the Queensland Agriculture and Environment Committee.
