ANZ ministers support draft for food system reforms

Australian and New Zealand ministers have supported the use of a draft that looks to modernise and reform the Food Regulation System as part of the latest Food Ministers’ Meeting (FMM) — a forum that discusses regulatory matters of the binational food system.

However, the FMM only agreed to adopt the document as a draft, which it can reconsider following stakeholder feedback about the key initiatives.

It is anticipated that policy options on key reform initiatives will be developed and provided for consideration of ministers later in 2021.

In March 2020, the FMM — then known as the Australian New Zealand Ministerial Forum on Food Regulation — endorsed an implementation plan for an ambitious reform agenda for the food regulatory system aimed at ensuring the system remains strong, robust and agile into the future.

The reform agenda is being progressed through a number of interconnected projects.
