Legislation

MPI's food safety legislation for dairy products includes specifications, notices and standards.

For Acts and most Regulations and Orders, see the New Zealand Legislation website.

Specifications and notices

Tips - try using:
  • one word for precise results - for example, alligator
  • multiple words for broader results. For example, alligator meat returns documents with either alligator or meat
  • quotation marks to search a specific term - for example, 'alligator meat' returns documents with the exact phrase 'alligator meat'
