Food Labelling

This website helps you find the information you need to understand what a food label is telling you, to help you manage your food choices.

If you are a food business, you’ll find information about what you need to include on a food label.

All food sold in Australia must comply with the Australia New Zealand Food Standards Code for labelling.

Sometimes there are other requirements too – for example, total weight and measure statements are regulated by the National Measurement Institute.

Everything said about a food on the label is also subject to Australian Consumer Law, which prohibits false, misleading or deceptive representations.
