BRING BACK COUNTRY OF ORIGIN LABELLING. I WANT TO BUY AUSTRALIAN PRODUCE NOT CHINESE

Right, so no one will be worse off. The NLP will make up any shortfall! The only thing wrong with this is that this money will be Tax Payers money that will diverted from other needs to prop up this promise! Does the Treasurer really expect us to believe that?? The incoming tax is not the 'Magic Pudding..cut and cut again' and there is still the same there!!! This fuzzy thinking is what this Govt is known for... a thought bubble that they think we will all accept without question. It is not logical!!

That doesn't cover the cost of the RAH wow big deal be interesting to see how this will be spent

257/8 is 5/8th's of stuff all.Labor spent that in a day.

To empower Australian consumers to understand the origin of the food we buy, country of origin labelling is now mandatory. This means you can choose to support Australian producers when you shop. Take a look at what this will look like when you go shopping:

Mr Littleproud.This is a half assed system.It's not country of origin legislation.It's one country of origin.I want to know what's from china.This system doesn't do that.Anything not Australian could be from anywhere.

Best food in the world in your mouth. Not with the stupid laws allowing diseased fruit, prawns & fish into Australia. What about contaminated honey from China & labeled as Australian. Our laws are helping other countries to send us diseases we do not have.

How come this lower grade stuff is allowed in anyway???? We, as consumers, are not interested in political deals, pacts, whatever. We are entitled to have the best, as we grow the best!!!

Too late for a local businesses Should have been done years ago
