1 Allergen Labelling: Exemptions & May be Present VITAL Phase 2 Allergen Bureau Seminar, April 2013 Julie Newlands & Georgina Christensen

2 Quick history of VITAL! 2002: ANZFSC Standard mandatory labelling of certain allergens (gluten, crustacea, egg, fish, milk, tree nuts, sesame seeds, peanuts and soybeans) -for intentionally added allergens only How do we label cross contact allergens? Absence of guidance meant that each company used it s own risk assessment A 2009 survey showed 42 statements!!

3 VITAL in place! VITAL was developed by industry for industry to determine when a precautionary statement should be used & when it should be avoided VITAL was launched in June 2007 & has undergone significant development VITAL end 2010: FSANZ - Food industry is addressing allergen labelling and precautionary labelling well Blewett - VITAL system be explored as a possible supplementary model to manage food label declarations

4 VITAL Outcomes Clear and consistent labelling for consumers to know when a product is safe for them to consume Appropriate labelling is a key outcome for VITAL

5 How do we form labelling outcomes from VITAL results?
