Proposed Specifications for the Manufacturing of Dairy Based Formulae for Infants and Young Children
MPI periodically asks for feedback on food safety issues that affect consumers and the food industry. You can make a submission (by post, email or fax) before the closing date. MPI analyses all submissions and considers how they might be included in final decisions.
As part of the infant formula market assurance programme, announced by the Minister for Food Safety in June 2013, MPI proposes to make specifications for the manufacture of dairy based formulae for infants and young children under the Animal Products Act 1999. The draft specifications are attached to this paper at Appendix 1. Submissions are sought from interested parties, and in particular manufacturers, on the consultation paper and draft specifications.
