Update – May 2022
In February 2021, the Australia New Zealand Food Standards Code (the Code) was amended to introduce new requirements for the labelling of allergens in food. These plain English allergen labelling changes will help people find allergen information on food labels more quickly and easily so they can make informed and safe food choices.
Food businesses have until 25 February 2024 to update their labels and train their staff so the information they give customers meets the new rules.
Any food packaged and labelled before this date, under the existing rules, may be sold for a further 2 years.
