Health and Nutrient Claims

A significant amount of New Zealand legislative reform in the food industry took place in 2014.

The introduction of Standard 1.2.7 (Nutrition, Health and Related Claims) under the Australia New Zealand Food Standard Code was introduced and all businesses need to be compliant by 18th January 2016.

To assist members we have developed a Guide to Complying with Standard 1.2.7. The guide provides information on making Health and Nutrient Claims for fresh fruit and vegetables. It sets out the mandatories and provides consumer friendly interpretations for packaging and advertising.

Guide available to download for logged in United Fresh members, for access please email info@unitedfresh.co.nz

Nutrition Information Panels (NIPs)

United Fresh has also recently compiled NIPs for all fresh fruit and vegetables in partnership with Plant and Food Research and Nutritionists using the most up to date information from the 2016 FOODFiles.

Our Guide to Standard 1.2.7 and NIPS are available on request for members of United Fresh.
