New country of origin labelling requirements commence
Sunday, 01 Jul 2018
From 1 July 2018, foods must be labelled according to the requirements of the Country of Origin Food Labelling Information Standard 2016. If your business is required to adopt the new labels, we remind you to consider:
identifying whether your products are ‘priority’ or ‘non-priority’ foods
confirming if you need any information from your suppliers to work out the percentage of Australian ingredients in your foods
determining the types of claims you can make about your products – are they grown, produced, made or packed in Australia or overseas?
