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?

For more information to help you understand the new requirements, visit:
