New Product of Australia labelling

Can anyone tell me when the new ‘Country of Origin’ labelling laws kick in? A few products in Woolworths seem to be fully compliant but many have the percentage of Australian content in hidden tiny 2 point print and most have not changed or added any info at all!!

Thank you, I wasn’t sure if it was already in force.

Not so new now. And more than just food products to consider. A rather interesting deception. You need to look more carefully for the honest answer.


It’s no surprise the product is not made in Australia. Just keep reading the fine print and all is revealed.

Fortunately no green and yellow label in this example.

Edit
Please note Discourse may have a problem scaling and displaying the images in normal view. On the iPad they show ok in preview mode, but appear to revert to an oversized thumbnail once posted. The original appears to display in full once you click or tap on the image. Perhaps @BrendanMays there is a fix.
