Aussies will now be able to have their say on what the nation’s new country of origin food labels look like.

Minister for Agriculture, the Hon Barnaby Joyce MP and Minister for Industry and Science, the Hon Ian Macfarlane MP yesterday launched a public survey to tackle the issue of food labelling in Australia. The commission was launched after the Hepatitis A scare involving imported Chinese frozen berries.

Here are some of the options for the food label:

6531392-16x9-940x529

“Consumers have told us loud and clear that they want more useful food labelling, and now we want to hear from them about which options they prefer,” Joyce and Macfarlane said in a joint statement.

“Based on our consultation sessions in major capital and regional cities, we have valuable industry information on how we can implement a system that is fair and transparent for consumers without adding extra costs to business.

“It’s important that people can make informed choices about the food they buy at their local supermarket. We want Australians to have confidence in knowing where their food is coming from.”

The survey is open from today until Friday 3rd July. Click here to have your say.
