Western Australia's potato industry has been governed by the same regulations for 69 years.

Potato growers set for shake up

Potato farmers are disappointed with the state government’s reported decision to abolish the industry regulator after the 2017 election, but have said they are willing to consider changes to eliminate some of the most controversial legislation governing their trade.

The PMC is an outdated institution. Its ludicrous that you should have a regulator for potatoes when all other vegetables are grown and sold in a free market. There is absolutely no reason why potatoes shouldn't be subject to free market forces as well.

Thanks for your comments!
