FoodLegal to run Country of Origin Countdown breakfast

Brought to you by FoodLegal on 12th February 2018

With the countdown to Country of Origin compliance just around the corner FoodLegal is running a not to be missed information session.

FoodLegal’s Country of Origin Countdown Breakfast Seminar will answer all of your pressing CoOL questions including whether the bar chart can be avoided or is it necessary to identify single countries of origin?

Australian food producers must comply with the new Country of Origin labelling system by 1 July 2018.

Held at Monash University’s Clayton campus Thursday 1 March 2018, the seminar will be hosted by FoodLegal’s Principal Lawyer, Charles Fisher.

Charles Fisher is a regulatory advisor to leading Australian and international food and beverage companies, specialising in compliance assessment and new product development.

Your Country of Origin labelling questions answered

Some of the questions to be addressed in the session include:

  • Is there a way to avoid the bar chart?
  • Is it necessary to identify single countries of origin?
  • How to avoid misleading or deceiving consumers?
  • How to distinguish between non-priority and priority foods?
  • Is a doughnut a priority or non-priority food?
  • What does ‘substantial transformation’ really mean?
  • Will roasting and dry blending meet the test?
  • When is water “Australian”?

Doors open at 7:30am with the seminar starting from 8:00am, running until 9:30am. Entry fee is AUD $88.00 including GST and breakfast.

After the seminar, participants will be offered the chance to tour the Food Innovation Centre at Monash – a world class facility that helps food producers bring ideas to life.
