Buying Australian Pork
The Australian PorkMark Program helps you more clearly identify home-grown, fresh Australian pork. By looking for the distinctive pink Australian Pork Mark (pictured right) and/or the ‘Product of Australia’ wording ensures all Aussie fresh and processed pork products, it’s never been easier to buy and support Australian.
PRODUCT OF AUSTRALIA – This is Australian grown and is guaranteed to be made from Australian grown pork.
All of the below wording have the potential to include imported pork in the ingredients:
- MADE IN AUSTRALIA – This can be grown and processed in Australia but potentially contains imported meat.
- MADE FROM IMPORTED AND LOCAL INGREDIENTS – This is most likely to contain predominately imported pork.
- MADE FROM LOCAL AND IMPORTED INGREDIENTS – Which is more likely to be made from Australian grown pork than the above, but is using imported spices or cures and possibly some imported pork.
