The Australia New Zealand Food Standards Code requires labelling of all foods containing
ingredients, ingredients of compound ingredients, food additives or components of food
additives, or processing aids or components of processing aids from specified allergenic
source materials. The regulatory process allows parties to seek an exemption from the
mandatory labelling requirements of the standard if it can be demonstrated that the inclusion of material from an allergenic source is not likely to present a risk of allergic reactions in allergic consumers.
