Food Standards Australia New Zealand


Food Standards Australia New Zealand (FSANZ) develops and administers the Food Code, which lists requirements for foods such as additives, food safety, labelling and GM foods.

Our team carried out a review of the effectiveness of the regulations to approve the addition of new nutritive substances and novel substances to the food supply in Australia and New Zealand. We focused particularly on the cost implications of the regulations for companies and levels of compliance. 

An example of an Australasian food product containing a novel substance (in this case phytosterols) under these regulations is  Kraft Liveactive cheese.
