Food Standards Australia New Zealand (FSANZ) has invited consumers, public health professionals, food manufacturers and governments at all levels to comment on proposed changes to the Australia New Zealand Food Standards Code.

The changes under consideration include the mandatory fortification of food with iodine, a review of approvals for food additives, a review of labelling requirements for retail sale and catering purposes, a primary production and processing standard for the dairy industry, approval of a genetically modified food, changes to the novel foods standard and an increase in the amount of saccharin allowed in water-based flavoured drinks.

FSANZ is an independent bi-national government agency responsible for setting food standards that determine what manufacturers can put into the food supply and the scope of information that they must provide on food labels.
