(Endorsed 4 April 2003)
On 4 April 2003 the Australia and New Zealand Food Regulation Ministerial Council (Ministerial Council) agreed to a policy direction on mandatory country of origin labelling of food. Ministers emphasised that this was not a public health and safety issue, as the safety of the food supply is assured through other means. The Ministerial Council's support for country of origin labelling was on the grounds of enabling consumers to make informed choices.
