Remote food pricing inquiry hears from Outback Stores and NIAA

The Indigenous Affairs Committee will welcome the National Indigenous Australians Agency (NIAA) and Outback stores who will be appearing together at the second public hearing for the inquiry into food prices and food security in remote communities.

Committee Chair Julian Leeser MP said that this will be an important opportunity for the Committee to discuss the operations of remote community stores located across the NT, WA and SA with both Outback Stores and the NIAA.

‘Outback Stores are supporting about 40 remote stores and we look forward to discussing the management and governance of these businesses and how this contributes to a secure supply of affordable and healthy food for their communities.’
