Australian Food GI Presentation


Dr Paula Zito, PhD in Law, LLB (Hons), BA (The University of Adelaide)
Food Geographical Indications Consultant
Legal Practitioner (Intellectual Property & Commercial Law)
Lecturer of Law, Adelaide Law School, The University of Adelaide

In this presentation, Dr Paula Zito, committee member of the South Australian chapter of IPSANZ, will discuss the case that exists at a local and national level in Australia for the implementation of an Australian food Geographical Indications (GI) framework based on the:

  • Differential treatment between Australian regional names used on wine labels vis-à-vis food labels
  • Deficiencies with current Australian laws and regulations that regulate origin claims made on food labels
  • Need for a dedicated framework that protects and regulates the connection between food and origin given that this is not the primary focus or concern of other laws

Paula will provide insight into some of the important features that an Australian food GI framework should include in order for it to be successful and valuable for the Australian food industry.
Paula will also provide an update on where the GI negotiations are at in context of the Australia-European Union Free Trade Agreement, thereby highlighting the international case that accordingly exists for the implementation of an Australian food GI framework.
