Industry

The NSW food industry is a significant contributor to the economy with 55,000 food businesses across the state. The food processing industry alone contributes $25 billion.

Keeping food safe is vital for NSW food businesses and they have a responsibility to make sure the food they produce, process, store, distribute and sell is safe for human consumption and correctly labelled.

 

Highlights

Audits, compliance and TPAs

Enforcement of the Food Act 2003 helps achieve the effective management of food safety risks and the prevention of misleading conduct in connection with the sale of food.

Export

The NSW Food Authority can issue export certificates to NSW food manufacturers to facilitate export trade. However, the first port of call is the Australian Department of Agriculture.

Allergies and intolerances

Food Standards Australia New Zealand (FSANZ) sets standards for labelling of products containing food allergens, gluten and sulphite preservatives.
