What’s this sugar debate all about?
Because sugar farmers don’t get paid immediately for their sugar (and some of their revenue is dependent on the world market prices for sugar), they feel that they should have a say about how its marketed.
The result was a sugar Code of Conduct — which allows farmers to tell the miller how the sugar should be marketed. This ties the miller up in red tape.
Senator Leyonhjelm makes the point that once you sell something, it is no longer your property.
All this does it layer the sugar millers up in red tape, meaning they can’t really run their own business.
