On August 10, 2018, Food Standards Australia New Zealand (FSANZ) has enforced The Imported Food Control Amendment (Country of Origin) Act 2018.
This Act amends the definition of national standard to include the Country of Origin Food Labelling Information Standard 2016. Country of Origin Food Labelling Information Standard 2016 provides for mandatory country of origin labelling requirements for food that is sold (including offered or displayed for sale) in Australia.
There are different labelling requirements depending on whether the food was:
- grown, produced or made in Australia
- packaged in Australia
- grown, produced or made in another country
- packaged in another country.
FSANZ has commenced on July 10, 2018.
