Update on QLD Government Engagement

21 Jun 2023 2:23 PM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

David Ridden and Matt Hobson met with Minister Glenn Butcher and the Department for a face to face meeting on 16th of May. The meeting was productive, with:

  • Department directed to undertake a review of the container refund scheme in regard to an exemption for holders of the artisan producers license.
  • The Minister and department asked for a roadmap for the trial of retail of artisan liquor via independent grocers in Queensland. David Ridden will be meeting with David Inall, CEO of Master Grocers Australia in July to discuss the roadmap. David will also meet with the CEO of QHA to seek understanding and cooperation on the roadmap.
  • Presented QDA's 3 year $6m funding plan

With a state election expected in the next 12 months, there will be an increasing need for QDA to represent the interests of distillers with local MPs and candidates. The QDA committee will be seeking help from members around the state to assist with this.
