Food Manufacturing Industry Guide to Safety 2015/16 – Released

FM6-5-Chart-Image-72dpiFood safety standards place obligations on Australian food businesses to produce food that is safe and suitable for consumption. Pro-Visual Publishing has released the latest edition of the Food Manufacturing Industry Guide to Safety 2015/16. This essential guide will assist food manufacturers in addressing and identifying key issues and other requirements affecting food safety, such as allergens, chemical residues and pathogens of foodborne illnesses.

In this industry, manufacturers must comply with the standards set by Food Standards Australia New Zealand (FSANZ) which has a legislated obligation to protect consumers from harmful food products. FSANZ has issued relevant standards that are absolutely binding for all food products manufactured in Australia. This year’s Guide clarifies the various standards that can apply in the processing and manufacturing of food.

Not everyone in the food manufacturing industry is up-to-date with the terminology outlined in standards. Fortunately the Guide has a section which focuses on the definitions of certain terms. This helps food and beverage manufacturers to better understand the rules associated with determining what food products are acceptable.

“I would like to thank all of the sponsors of the Food Manufacturing Industry Guide to Safety 2015/16. Their support has made it possible for the Guide to be distributed free of charge” – John Hutchings, CEO, Pro-Visual Publishing.
