On 26 September 2018, the ACCC announced it would conduct a market study of the Australian wine grape industry. The study focussed on identifying market failures or trade practices that prevent the functioning of competitive markets or result in detriment to wine grape growers.
On 3 June 2019, the ACCC released its interim report. Stakeholders are encouraged to make submissions on the interim report by 28 June 2019.
The final report is due for release in September 2019.
