“Around regional Australia, people tell me they want to buy Australian and support Australian farmers - but the labels are confusing.

“It is time for serious change. Along with my ministerial colleagues Industry Minister Ian Macfarlane, Agriculture Minister Barnaby Joyce and Trade Minister Andrew Robb, I look forward to delivering it.

“Australian consumers deserve a simple, clear labelling system which makes it clear which country the produce is from. Australian farmers deserve to have their product clearly identified so that consumers can reward our clean, green produce with their choices in the supermarket.”
