New allergen labeling requirements in force

New Zealand

Feb 23, 2024

New requirements on allergens labeling come into effect. All food packaged and labelled after Sunday 25 February 2024 must declare allergens or provide statements about the content where appropriate. The requirements will vary depending on how the food is packaged, labelled and sold and risk that needs to be identified. Under the changes, potentially life-threatening common allergens must be listed in bold in the ingredients list and summarised in a 'contains' statement on the label.

Any food packaged and labelled before 25 February 2024 under the previous allergen labelling rules can continue to be sold until 25 February 2026.
