Australian-grown label for packaged food

The Federal Government will set up a “Grown in Australia” labelling program for packaged foods.

Shops and supermarkets are already required to label fresh fruit and vegetables with the country of origin.

Minister for Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry, Tony Burke said consumers have the right to know what they’re buying.

“The process and laws that we have in terms of labelling are unblievably complex,” he said.

“We have to get to the point where consumers, when they think they’re buying Australian, actually are.”
