Country of Origin Labeling at Point of Sale
".....the problem is especially intense for our industry as the species are iconically Australian. Orange juice is a global commodity. Barramundi, redclaw, silver perch and ocean kings all have uniquely Australian connotations and any reasonable consumer would see “Made in Australia” for a prepared meal ready product as implying they are Australian – especially for something as basic as a piece of barramundi coated in bread crumbs. The legislation needs better to reflect common sense. "
