The start of the financial year for 2016 brings with it the initial rollout of the Australian Country of Origin labelling laws. Your Australian Country of Origin labels & Country of Origin Labelling Equipment is available here at GaP Solutions.
With a 2 year transitional period to facilitate the rollout, retailers will be fined if they don’t comply with Australian Country of Origin labelling laws by July 1st 2018.
Marketing & Operations Manager at GaP Solutions, Josh Cavuoto says, “it’s important retailers proactively seek out the necessary labels & equipment necessary to facilitate country or origin labelling in this initial phase. Getting your customers used to the new packaging is a transition that will take time. The team here at GaP Solutions are able to equip retailers with the necessary labels and country of origin label printing equipment to make sure they comply, well before the July 1st 2018 cut off date.”
As per the new country of origin labelling laws, packaging for food must include both text advising the portion of Australian ingredients in weight, as well as an easy to read bar graph that allows the consumer to quickly identify the percentage at a glance.
