Cultured quail cells under FSANZ evaluation as potential novel food


Dec 11, 2023

The Food Standards Australia New Zealand (FSANZ) is undertaking the first round of public consultation on the application to amend the Australia New Zealand Food Standards Code to authorize the use of cultured quail cells as novel food.
