Country of Origin food labelling requirement

This post provides readers with important information about country of origin food labelling requirements in Australia.

All businesses–including manufacturers, processors and importers that offer food for retail sale in Australia–now must comply with the Country of Origin Food Labelling Information Standard, which specifies how claims can be made about the origin of food products.

The new requirements will apply to most food offered for retail sale in Australia, including food sold in stores or markets, online or from a vending machine. It does however exclude food sold in restaurants, cafes, take-away shops or schools.

Labels must show where food is grown, produced, made or packed.
