If you are in the food industry you will no-doubt be looking at how and when you implement the new regulatory Country of Origin Food Labels.
If you sell food in retail stores in Australia, new Country of Origin Labelling (CoOL) laws will apply to your products from 1 July 2016 – but your labels don’t need to change immediately.
Businesses have a two-year grace period to transition to the new label style. But this time will fly, so if you are looking at this now, take a moment to call us so we can help you implement a transition plan and ensure you are working to code in advance of the 1 July 2018 deadline.
Where needed, the Same Day Printing team can work with you to stagger the design and print of new labels across your products over a period of months, reducing the cost and time impact that that this change will have on your business.
If your internal team are able to address some of the changeover requirements for you, below are some useful tools to help you do so.
