New requirements for allergen labelling on packaged foods

Australia

Mar 30, 2021

The changes to the Australia New Zealand Food Standards Code (the Code) will help ensure mandatory food allergen declarations are clear and consistent so that consumers have the information they need to make safe food choices. 

The requirements include:

  • The declaration of allergen information in a specific format and location on food labels

  • The use of simple, plain English terms for allergen declarations.   

Any food packaged and labelled before the end of the transition period under existing allergen declaration requirements may be sold for up to 2 years after the end of the transition period.
