Country of origin food labelling

This guide is designed to help businesses and industry groups learn about the ACL provisions relating to country of origin claims and understand how these provisions operate.

This publication is currently under review. Please be aware that the Competition and Consumer Amendment (Country of Origin) Bill 2016 (the Bill) to amend the ACL’s safe harbour defences is currently before the Senate. The Bill proposes amendments to the ACL’s safe harbour defences and the definition of substantial transformation in relation to ‘made in’ claims.
