FSANZ has developed information on a range of topics of interest to consumers, which appear in the left hand menu. If you can’t find what you’re looking for or if you’re after something specific, try using our search box above. In addition, feel free to email us if you have any feedback or suggestions.

A guide to the Food Standards Code – the regulations that cover the sale of food in Australia and New Zealand - is also available. We use the best available scientific evidence to develop food standards. This work underpins our ability to protect the public health and safety of consumers. Visit our science section to learn more.  

We also coordinate food recalls in Australia. View the latest consumer recalls. In New Zealand, food recalls are coordinated by the Ministry for Primary Industries.

A series of animated videos are available covering Listeria, chemicals in food and what we do (and don't do). View the videos.

In our consumer section you will find advice and information to help you make informed decisions about the food you buy. We also have a range of translated materials available in various languages.
