New Food Standards across Australia introduced 8 December

Published on Tuesday, 19 September 2023 at 7:50:35 AM

New standards are being introduced across Australia by Food Standards Australia New Zealand (FSANZ) to improve food safety and prevent food-borne illness. Poor food handling can cause outbreaks of foodborne illnesses, which can result in avoidable hospitalisations, loss of revenue and reputational damage to food businesses.
Some food businesses will be required to implement food safety management tools. These will enable food businesses to manage food safety risks more effectively to help prevent foodborne illnesses and outbreaks, loss of revenue and reputational damage.
Food businesses that handle unpackaged, potentially hazardous and/or ready-to-eat foods will need to comply with the new standard requirements by 8 December 2023.
