COUNTRY OF ORIGIN SUPPORT

THERE has been a surge in public support in Australia to reform the country of origin food labelling system and some members of Parliament are seeking to build a bi-partisan consensus to secure a transparent approach. It has been proposed that “manufactured in” replace the “made in” wording for food substantially transformed in a particular country. Packaged In is suggested for highly processed foods that could not claim to have ingredients of significant processing in a particular country. There has also been a strong support for Australian-grown and made foods.
