New Year Applause for Exciting Seafood Country of Origin Labelling
The calendar has flipped, and we’re off and running into 2023.
What an announcement on 23rd December 2022! Seafood labelling! Hooray!
Finally, Australians will be sitting down to a seafood meal in hospitality venues – such as hotels, cafes, restaurants, pubs and takeaway services – which are currently exempt from the labelling system, to a seafood meal WITH strict labelling, allowing consumers to see where their seafood has come from.
“The Albanese Government has proposed a mandatory country of origin labelling (Cool) model for seafood in hospitality settings”.
We’ve been offering this information on our menus since 2011!
The issue of seafood sustainability and knowing if seafood is imported or Australian produce is of growing importance for the consumer. We’ve always strived to make our customers experience educational, inspirational and diverse by training our staff to be knowledgeable, evolving our menu through the seasons and providing our customers with the opportunity to shop sustainably for fresh fish within the restaurant.
