Refreshing our food safety strategy
The New Zealand Food Safety Strategy 2019-2024 was launched in 2019. In 2022, we published a strategy refresh. It responds to changes in our environment and will guide our direction through to 2024.
Our outcomes and foundations
We continue to embrace our vision and our guiding principles from the strategy published in 2019. Our strategy refresh identifies 2 outcomes:
- New Zealand food is safe and suitable.
- New Zealand's food sector thrives.
We also identify 2 foundations:
- Grow a genuine partnership with Māori.
- Strengthen our organisation to deliver.
Our foundations will ensure that we are better equipped to work towards our outcomes and deliver on them.
Under our outcomes and foundations, we set out our priorities and initiatives that will make the greatest impact for the New Zealand food safety system.
Our food safety vision
New Zealand food: Trusted and recognised by everyone, everywhere
Ko tāu rourou, ko tāku rourou, ka ora ait e iwi.
— By sharing your food basket with my food basket the people will thrive.
