Registrations open for PIF V6.0 workshop
Registrations for an Auckland workshop and introduction on the Australian Food and Grocery Council’s Product Information Form V6.0 are now open. It will be held next Monday, July 31, at the Waipuna Hotel and Conference Centre, Mt Wellington, between 8.30am and 12.30pm.
The electronic/revised PIF was launched in Australia at the Australian Institute of Food Science and Technology Conference on July 17.
This is the first major update of the PIF in more than four years. The PIF standardises the business-to-business information required about food and food ingredients for regulatory compliance throughout the supply chain. Importantly, this version brings the PIF into the digital age, with online portals for PIF creation, distribution, searching and archiving.
PIF V6.0 also includes significant data improvements and additions to support country of origin labelling, health star ratings, VITAL® Allergen outcomes and health and nutrition claims.
AFGC says the online version of the PIF is, in a sense, just one small step in the PIF’s continuing journey, but is also one giant leap for the ability of the food industry to deliver authentic, manufacturer-curated data through the supply chain to address the modern consumer expectations for information about the food they eat.
