Australia will introduce mandatory country-of-origin food labeling from 2016, Prime Minister Tony Abbott said Tuesday, a move given impetus by a hepatitis outbreak earlier in the year blamed on contaminated berries from China.When country-of-origin labelling was proposed in February, some analysts said the laws could contravene World Trade Organization (WTO) rules.Abbott said he was confident the new regulations would satisfy WTO rules and Joyce insisted the U.S. case was not comparable.A Roy Morgan poll in 2013 showed that more than 60 percent of Australians sometimes bought products because they were made in Australia even when they were more expensive than imported goods.
