Legislative Requirements

All food products must comply with the Australia New Zealand Joint Food Code. The Code sets out New Zealand's food standards which are promulgated by regulation and establish domestic food composition and labelling rules. A copy of the Code and the associated User Guidelines can be downloaded from the Australia New Zealand Food Standards Authority's website: www.foodstandards.govt.nz

All products must satisfy wider legislative and regulatory requirements relating to product safety, performance, and labelling. Suppliers are responsible for ensuring that their products conform to all requirements and will be asked to make appropriate declarations.
