Regulation of Health Claims on Food in Australia and New Zealand 


Presented by:


Janine Curl, Food Labelling Regulatory Compliance Consultant, Food Labelling Matters


Do you export food to Australia or New Zealand? The new Australian and New Zealand standard for the sale of food with nutrition and health claims is enforceable from 18 January 2016. It is the first Standard of its kind in the world that permits the self substantiation of general level health claims used on a food label. This webinar will provide a summary of the food labelling requirements for nutrition claims, general level health claims, and high level health claims.
