The Independent Liquor Group (ILG) has paid a penalty of $10,200 following the issue of an infringement notice by the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission in relation to its Aussie Beer product. The ACCC considered that, by its packaging and labelling, ILG represented that its Aussie Beer product was a product made in Australia when in fact the product was made in China. The infringement notice was issued because the ACCC had reasonable grounds to believe that ILG had made false or misleading representations about the country of origin of the Aussie Beer product, in contravention of the Australian Consumer Law (ACL).
