Country of Origin

From July 2018, the Country of Origin Food (CoOL) Labelling scheme becomes mandatory for many retail foods. The new Country of Origin Information Standard requires both locally produced and imported foods considered priority foods, to be labelled with the new Country of Origin information and logos. This includes   kangaroo icon, bar chart with % Australian ingredients and a CoOL text statement in a defined box.

We can help you create your Country of Origin labelling by:

  • Determine priority or non-priority food
  • Assess ‘Grown in’, ‘Produced in’, ‘Made in’ and ‘Packed in’ suitability
  • Assess substantial transformation for ‘Made in’
  • Calculate the correct percentage of Australian ingredients
  • Determine CoOL Statement, Symbol and Format
  • Evaluate Imported Products Country of Origin Labelling
