The public submission period for the first review of the Dairy Industry Code of Conduct opens on July 5 and will run until August 15.

Federal Agriculture Minister David Littleproud said the government was seeking input from dairy farmers, processors, industry representative bodies, government agencies and consumer organisations.

"The Dairy Code of Conduct was introduced on January 1, 2020 to address market imbalances in the dairy industry," Mr Littleproud said.

"In this first review, feedback is required to make sure the code is operating as intended.

"The code is an important part of the dairy industry, and we want to make sure it is working positively for Australian farmers and businesses."

A review reference group will support the first review of the code.

The group is made up of farmer and processor representatives from across the eight dairy regions.

The code intends to address serious imbalances in bargaining power at each level of the dairy supply chain.

"It's important that we do our bit as a government to ensure a fair go for dairy farmers," Mr Littleproud said.

"Creating a stronger business environment, healthier market competition and more competitive supply chains means fairer prices for farmers."

Public submissions can be lodged at the Have Your Say website.
