The Australian government is making country of origin labelling changes, largely due to consumer demands for clearer, more meaningful and accurate origin claims on food labels. Given some of the instances of poor produce being consumed by Australian’s, we at Y.V. Fresh believe this is a positive mood that seeks to ensure Australian’s are made aware of where the fresh produce they are consuming really came from. The new labels will consist of the following:
Grown in Australia: For foods where all of the ingredients are Australian grown.
Product of Australia: For all foods where all of the ingredients are Australian and all major processing has been done here.
Made in Australia: For foods where the ingredients come from Australia or overseas and major processing has been done here.
Packed in Australia: Features only a bar chart which shows the percentage of Australian ingredients.
At Y.V. Fresh, our berries are 100% grown, owned and packed, ensuring you the freshest berries of the highest standards. We will proudly display our ‘Grown in Australia’ labels, that means so much to our local farmers, and to the trust of our Australian consumers.
