Australia introduces new country of origin labelling requirements for food sold in retail stores

Australia has finalized enhanced country of origin labeling requirements for food sold in retail stores.
The new requirements will come into force  on July 1, 2016 . In its notification to the WTO, Australia said that the main change for most food imported is that the country of origin statement will now need to be placed in a defined box.

There will be a two-year transitional period for companies to adapt to the new requirements.
