Please join the Food & Agri-Business Committee to hear Charles Fisher, Principal of FoodLegal in Melbourne, give an informative session by video conference on upcoming changes to food labelling requirements on Australian-sold retail food products (due to take effect on July 1, 2018).

The Country of Origin Food Labelling Information 2016 commenced on July 1, 2016 under the Australian Consumer Law. Its purpose was to create a national standard for distinguishing locally grown, produced, or manufactured foods in Australia from those that were grown, produced, or manufactured outside of Australia.

The new reforms will place an obligation on Australian retailers to indicate how much of the food product is grown or produced in Australia. Foreign imported foods will have to be labelled accordingly. Australian food retail businesses have until July 1, 2018 to apply labels on their food products in accordance to the amendment (Amendment No. 165 to Australia New Zealand Food Standards Code – Standard 1.2.1).

Charles Fisher is a Principal of FoodLegal and is the food regulatory and compliance advisor to leading Australian and international food and beverage companies including food regulatory issues and product risk assessment and advice in relation to new product development projects and product marketing campaigns.
