Top five concerns with the new Food Standards Code
As food companies prepare for the March 1st 2016 introduction of the new Food Standards Code many have raised concerns with how it will affect their products, labelling, marketing and future of their business.
FoodLegal is at the forefront of food compliance in Australia. They have been helping clients with product innovation, labelling and marketing compliance for over a decade. FoodLegal’s experience and insight into the Food Standards Code, Import Control Orders and State and Territory regulations allow their clients to focus on their unique product development.
With the FoodLegal InHouse TM subscription service and their team of experienced consultants, FoodLegal is now working with food companies to help prepare them for the new Food Standards Code.
In April FoodLegal principal, Charles Fisher and some of the leading people behind the development of the new Food Standards Code presented a half-day seminar in Melbourne asking “Are you ready for the new food standards code?” The audience was engaged and by the end of the session they were on their way to being ready. But many wanted more and those that could not make the event asked how can you help us get ready for the new Food Standards Code?
Unfortunately, it is impossible to gather the same group of speakers for Sydney and Brisbane but the demand for an event in these states has lead FoodLegal to prepare a special briefing:
New insights into the new Food Standards Code
In a two-hour presentation, FoodLegal principal Charles Fisher will summarise all of the FoodLegal Symposium presentations, address the concerns raised with the new Food Standards Code and deliver insights into the new Food Standards Code.
For the first time, the new Food Standards Code attempts to define food to make it legally binding. What is Food?
There is a new approach to a substance “being used as a food additive” Are food additives no longer restricted at all?
The names of certain product types are now protected. What are specified names?
These protected names may have unintended consequences. Can I still call my product that?
Companies use a lot of internal documents for food production and marketing. Will my current compliance documents be irrelevant?
FoodLegal principal Charles Fisher will use his extensive knowledge of the Food Standards Code, old and new, to deliver insights into these questions and much more in a two-hour presentation. There will be a question and answer session to help you prepare for March 1st 2016 and the new Food Standards Code.
