MPI dishes out some food facts
With the passing of the new Food Act 2014, MPI has produced some very useful fact sheets for general use by both suppliers and retailers.
Though the Act will not come into force till 1 March 2016, some specific sections relating to food recall and the ability to manage a food safety incident are in force now.
The fact sheet for retailers provides specific information on how the Act will affect day-to-day operations. It should be read in conjunction with the fact sheet called ‘Food Act 2014 – the facts’, which includes an overview of the Act and answers some common questions.
