The Australian Government has introduced new Country of Origin Labelling (CoOL) laws which mean businesses selling food into Australian retail stores will need to start using new labels on certain food product.
If you have an existing NPC catalogue for your Australian retailer, please follow the CoOL Quick Start Guide.
Note - the requirement is different for "priority" versus "non-priority" foods. See detail on how the ACCC define this here. Non-priority foods will only be required to carry the Country of Origin Statement.
If your Australian retailer has asked you to sign up to create a National Product Catalogue, please do so here.
Note for GS1 Staff: Ensure Mask "Australia Core" is activated for Publisher users.
