Just 9 days to Country of Origin Labelling

The countdown is on and Minister for Agriculture David Littleproud has reminded companies and consumers that Country of Origin Labelling is just 9 days away.

From July 1, products on supermarket shelves will be legally required to display country of origin information.

"This is great news for customers and companies,” Minister Littleproud said.

"Aussie customers will be able to choose Australian and vote with their wallets.

"Companies which source their products from Australia will be able to display it loud and proud and reap the rewards.

"Country of origin labelling shouldn't stop at the supermarket. Aussies should get the chance to support Aussie farmers in other marketplaces too. This is why I convened a meeting with fast food companies recently, in which they agreed to display country of origin information on their websites and apps.

"Aussies want to support Aussie farmers and they'll soon have the chance."
