Country of origin labelling forums
The Australian Government, in partnership with the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission, will be conducting information sessions to educate businesses on the country of origin labelling requirements for food.
Businesses will be required to make changes to the country of origin labels on unpackaged fresh fruit and vegetables before 1 July 2018.
There are four forums scheduled in Victoria during March:
- Albury Thursday 23 March (am)
- Shepparton Thursday 23 March (pm)
- Melbourne (Dandenong) Tuesday 28 March (am)
- Melbourne (CBD) Tuesday 28 March (pm)
These forums are designed to help businesses understand the new labels, including the requirements that need to be met to make ‘grown in/product of/made in’ claims. The forums will also include a demonstration of the online tool which can be used to help identify appropriate labels for food products.
Fruit and vegetable sellers and buyers are encouraged to attend.
