Mandatory Allergen Labelling

As a food importer, you are responsible for ensuring the imported food is safe and meets the mandatory allergen labelling requirements in the Australia New Zealand Food Standards Code.

The Australia New Zealand Food Standards Code specifies the 10 allergens that are required on food labels when present in the ingredients or components of food additives or processing aids. Meeting mandatory allergen labelling requirements not only avoid having to conduct food recalls, but can also save lives.
