NZ: Online tool helps food businesses understand new regulations

New Zealand Government: Food Safety Minister Jo Goodhew launched an online tool today that will help food businesses discover how they will be affected by the new Food Act 2014, which comes into force in March next year.

“Under the new Food Act there will be different rules for different businesses, depending on what they make or sell, and to who,” says Mrs Goodhew.

“We’ve created this online tool so that anyone providing or selling food can easily find out how the new food safety rules apply to them.”

The tool moves through a series of ‘yes/no’ questions to identify which requirements businesses will need to follow.
