Australian Dairy Farmers needs your support to stop the European Union from forcing Australia to accept geographical indications in a free trade agreement with Australia.
If the Government accepts these demands by the EU, 15 cheese varieties with an annual sales value of $500 million could be wiped out!
This won’t just impact our local dairy industry, but the industries and communities that all rely on dairy for their livelihoods.
