Food for Health Alliance makes submissions to the Commonwealth, State and Territory governments in Australia on issues related to food policy. We make submissions to Food Standards Australia New Zealand on changes to the Food Standards Code, to parliamentary inquiries and to government departments who are consulting on policy and regulatory change. We also make submissions to international consultations where appropriate. These processes help shape and inform the development of effective food policy.
