The Australian Government  is introducing a new country of origin food labelling system. The new system will commence on 1 July 2016. Under the new system, country of origin labelling requirements will come under Australian Consumer Law.

Businesses will have two years to sell current stock and change their labels to comply with the new law before it becomes mandatory on 1 July 2018.

Information about the new labels is available on the Department of Industry webiste.

General information about Country of Origin labelling is available at ACCC website.
