Have your say on Food Safety Rules + New Food Safety Resources available
26 October 2016
The Food Act 2014 came into effect on 1 March 2016 and applies to all food for sale in New Zealand.
MPI is consulting on proposed changes to food safety regulations and notices. Regulations and notices set rules that food businesses have to follow under the new Act.
Existing regulations and notices were consulted on last year and set out what businesses need to do to comply with the law.
As the new law is rolled out, MPI monitor and evaluate the changes. The proposals in this consultation make improvements where needed to make sure the new law works as intended.
