Food Act registration deadline

Fri, Nov. 30, 2018 |

If you make or sell food, your business may need to apply for Food Act registration by 30 November 2018. Members of recognised quality assurance programmes such as NZGAP, GlobalGAP and BRC, should check with their organisations to see they are registered as New Zealand Food Safety has been working to facilitate registration directly with those organisations.

But if you aren't registered with a recognised quality assurance programme who is looking after Food Act registration for you, find out what you need to do at 

Food Act workshops 

MPI are hosting workshops in Hawkes Bay, Tasman and Central Otago for businesses who need to apply for Food Act registration by the end of the month. The workshops are tailored for the horticultural industry and give an introduction to the Food Act 2014 – what it means for growers and packers, and how they can comply with food safety requirements.

20 November 2.00-4.00pm The Oak Room, Headingly Centre, 452 Lower Queen Street, Richmond
