For many years, Australians have been demanding changes to origin claims on food labels – to be clearer, more meaningful, accurate and easier to find.
The Australian Government is introducing new food labels to make it clearer where the products you buy are grown, produced, made or packed.Easy to understand labels will tell you at a glance where a product comes from, so you can make a clear and informed decision about the food you buy.
Most food produced, grown or made in Australia will have the kangaroo logo. Text and a bar chart will indicate the percentage of Australian ingredients.
Food that was packed in Australia will only feature a bar chart that shows the percentage of Australian ingredients. For imported foods, the label will clearly show the country of origin.
To see the new food labels, read the fact sheet or watch the animated information video, click the link below which will take you to information in a number of languages including;
English, Arabic, Mandarin, Cantonese, Vietnamese, Korean, Greek, Italian, Spanish, Filipino, and Hindi.
