The FSANZ Food Standards Code defines the requirements for food labelling in Australia. Chapter 1 covers food identification, mandatory warning and advisory statements, ingredients declaration (including characterising ingredients), date marking, directions for use and storage, nutrition and health related claims, and the construction of food nutrition information panels. There are also further requirements relating to the use of additives and processing aids.
This course carefully picks through the regulatory requirements, using real life examples and practical label development exercises to help participants develop a working knowledge and understanding of the regulatory landscape.
