FSANZ launches improved website

Wednesday, 16 August, 2006

Food Standards Australia New Zealand (FSANZ) has improved its website, claiming it makes it easier consumers, the food industry and health professionals to find information about food standards and other food concerns.

Launching the new website in Canberra, the Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister for Health and Ageing, Christopher Pyne, said the improved website has advanced search facilities that will make it easier to find information.

"Following a survey of users, the website has been redesigned and made easier to navigate. The website has more than 2,000 pages of information on a wide variety of food matters including: food standards and how to change them, food recalls, consumer information and scientific and technical reports," Pyne said.

"An average of 5,000 people visit the FSANZ website every day, and use is particularly high when there is a round of public comment, a new education campaign or a food recall or emergency. Over the coming months FSANZ will be working on further improvements of this important communication tool, including interactive material, sound and video files."

The FSANZ website can be accessed at Food Standards.
