The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission has discontinued action against Berrivale Orchards Ltd relating to alleged misleading labelling.

The discontinuance follows agreement by Berrivale to undertake corrective action requested by the Commission.

The companies Daily Juice Companies orange and apple and blackcurrant juice products had used the terms squeezed daily on its front labels for its orange juice products and crushed daily on its apple and blackcurrant juice products.

The ACCC alleged in the Federal Court that the orange juice contains a proportion of reconstituted juice during the winter months and the apple and blackcurrant juice always contained reconstituted blackcurrant juice.

The company has signed legally enforceable undertakings under the Trade Practices Act requiring it to place corrective advertisements in major metropolitan newspapers and to adhere to a corporate compliance program to ensure that in future its labelling complies with the Trade Practices Act.
