What are the food safety laws in Australia?
Food safety in Australia is governed by the Food Standards Australia New Zealand Act 1991 and the resultant Food Standards Code. This code specifies requirements for food additives, labeling, contaminants, hygiene, and general standards. Each state and territory also has its own legislation and regulatory bodies overseeing food safety, especially for businesses. Regular inspections, mandatory training, and hygiene practices are critical components.
