Food safety rules changed from 1 March 2016

Under the new Food Act 2014, food businesses and providers will need to meet different requirements depending on what they do and the level of food safety risk involved.

To see what rules apply to your business, use the "Where do I fit" tool found on the MPI website.

Find the tool at www.mpi.govt.nz/foodact
