- First major fast food outlet to respond to Minister Littleproud's call to voluntarily give consumers information on country of origin of its food
- Minister congratulates Domino's on commitment to transparency and Australian consumers
Domino's is the first major fast food outlet to voluntarily display greater country of origin information on its website and app.
Minister for Agriculture and Water Resources David Littleproud today congratulated Domino's for giving customers the chance to check the percentage of its products which were Australian in its core products.
"I asked fast food stores to give their customers country of origin information, and Domino's delivered," Minister Littleproud said.
"At a Country of Origin Labelling Roundtable on 2 May—which included McDonalds, Subway, KFC and Domino's—major fast food outlets agreed to put country of origin information on their websites and apps.
"This gives their customers the chance to choose Australian.
"Aussies deserve to know which products are Australian especially as so many Australians use country of origin as a gauge of food quality.
"Domino's is the first fast food provider to follow through with this information and I hope the others get a slice of the action soon."
