The 2 year transition period to new Country of Origin labelling for food sold in Australia is almost halfway done. If you're not sure how this affects your business, check out this short government video. It's not the most exciting thing you'll do today - but in less than 3 minutes you'll be on top of it!

If you're selling fresh foods, the rules still apply. Once you've watched the video, click here to get the detailed style guide published by the Australian Government.

Compliance remains optional until July 1, 2018, but many manufacturers and retailers have commenced making changes to packaging. Point of sale signage will remain optional for some things and not for others.
