Country of Origin Labelling in Australia takes effect on July 1

Country of Origin Australia
Pacific   Aussie customers will be able to choose Australian food

The countdown is on—Minister for Agriculture David Littleproud has reminded companies and consumers that Country of Origin Labelling is just 15 days away.


From July 1, products on supermarket shelves will be legally required to display country of origin information.

"There are just 20 days to go until our country of origin labelling becomes law," Minister Littleproud said.

"This is great news for customers and companies. Aussie customers will be able to choose Australian and vote with their wallets.

"Companies which source their products from Australia will be able to display it loud and proud and reap the rewards.

"Aussies will very soon have the chance to choose clean, green Aussie produce.

"It's no surprise Aussies prefer Australian farm produce—we produce the cleanest and most ethical food in the world.

"Country of origin labelling shouldn't stop at the supermarket. Aussies should get the chance to support Aussie farmers in other marketplaces too. This is why I convened a meeting with fast food companies recently, in which they agreed to display country of origin information on their websites and apps.

"Aussies want to support Aussie farmers and they'll soon have the chance."
