When it comes to preparing food labels, there are three governing regulation systems to comply with.
To comply with the Australian Consumer Law, a food producer needs to ensure that all statements and images comply with the requirement that prohibits false, misleading and deceptive representations. The Australian Food Standards code sets out the labelling requirements of all food products sold in Australia & New Zealand. Many foods sold in Australia will also need to comply with net content declaration requirements as regulated by the National Measurement Institute.
As a food producer it can be daunting knowing where to start. Need help with preparing or checking your food label, why not #askafoodtech how they can help you today.
