Country of origin food labelling surveillance to commence

The ACCC is conducting market surveillance checks on 10,000 food products to ensure businesses are correctly displaying the new country of origin labels.

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