Rice based desserts

The survey’s objectives were to:

  • review the manufacturing processes
  • gather information on the type of products, their intrinsic properties (pH and water activity) and the microbiological quality at the end of processing and at the end of shelf life
  • gather information on the industry baseline compliance in relation to the requirements in the Australia New Zealand Food Standards Code (the Code) and product labelling, implement remedial action for non-compliance and determine the change in compliance rates post intervention
  • develop and implement a risk management approach to make sure that rice based desserts made and sold in NSW are safe for consumption.
