‘Navigating the new health claims standard’ workshop

Offered by FoodStream in conjunction with FoodLegal – see www.foodlegal.com.au

For information on these events on the FoodLegal website click here.

In January 2013, a new Health Claims Standard was introduced into the Australia New Zealand Food Standards Code.

This workshop will cover:

  • How the new Health Claims Standard will apply to your products and marketing campaigns;
  • How the new Health Claims Standard will interact with other laws such as the Australian Consumer Law and the Therapeutic Goods Act;
  • How to substantiate health claims that have not been FSANZ pre-approved;
  • Methodological approaches for Health Claims;
  • Alternative marketing methods in light of the new Health Claims Standard.

FoodLegal have developed this workshop to help participants answer a wide range of questions on this new Health Claims Standard, such as:

  • Is it a nutrition claim or a general level health claim?
  • Can I claim to be “gluten free” anymore?
  • What can I say about fats?
  • What about innovative/novel substances?
  • What about sodium reduction claims?
  • When can I use a health-related endorsement?
  • What can be said in relation to “slimming” or “weight loss” problems?
  • What if my product does not meet the profiling criterion? What opportunities are there for me?
