It is hoped the pilot will shape a new code of conduct between distributors, publishers and retailers allowing the independents to compete better with supermarkets.

Alf Maccioni, CEO of the Australian Newsagents Federation, the industry body representing 2300 newsagents across Australia, said: “We support any measure that will help newsagents increase their profitability within the magazine category. Magazine supply has been a legacy issue that to date has not been resolved."
