Food Standards Australia New Zealand is seeking public comment on a possible change to the definition for “food produced using gene technology” and “gene technology”.
The definitions are important because they help to determine the classification of genetically modified foods in the Food Standards Code.
The proposal for making this change to the Code is P1055 and is aimed at making the definitions clearer and easier to understand, especially when considering new and emerging technologies and processes.
To assist people with understand P1055, FSANZ is hosting a free webinar on 12 November 2021, the details are below;
