Country of Origin of Food Act

On the 3rd December 2018 the Consumers’ Right to Know (Country of Origin of Food) Act was passed. This Act will require fresh or frozen fruit, vegetables, meat, fish and seafood to have Country of Origin Labelling (CoOL). This reflects where produce was grown/picked/caught rather than packed. Producers of these food products needed to comply by June 2019 for fresh produce and by 2020 for frozen produce.
