Plain English Allergen Labelling – Webinar #1

PEAL updates – what you need to know

Registration for this event has reached capacity. If you are interested in receiving a recording of the webinar please contact aifst@aifst.com.au

On February 25th Food Standards Australia New Zealand (FSANZ) announced new requirements for allergen labelling on packaged foods. 

The changes to the Australia New Zealand Food Standards Code (the Code) will help ensure mandatory food allergen declarations are clear and consistent so that consumers have the information they need to make safe food choices. 

The requirements include:

  • the declaration of allergen information in a specific format and location on food labels
  • the use of simple, plain English terms for allergen declarations.   

Join AIFST, the Allergen Bureau and the AFGC for the first of a 2-part webinar series on PEAL.

This first webinar will cover the changes with presentations from FSANZ and Provenance Legal.

Join us to grow, learn and connect.
