Country of origin labelling for seafood in hospitality settings - discussion paper; (11 page(s), in English)
The Australian Government has released a discussion paper seeking feedback on how to implement mandatory Country of Origin Labelling for seafood (seafood CoOL) in hospitality settings. The discussion paper outlines:
· objectives to guide the development of seafood CoOL
· a proposed model for seafood CoOL
· information on existing origin labelling schemes for hospitality.
The proposed model aims to be a simple, practical and low-cost approach for providing consumers with origin information to help them make decisions. Under the proposed model, hospitality businesses will need to indicate if their seafood is Australian, imported or mixed origin. It is proposed to apply to both saltwater and freshwater fish, shellfish and roe.
