Guidance and Regulatory Translation for Exporters and Food Businesses

Did you know that building compliance into your product is part and parcel of building customer confidence? Complying with importing country food safety and animal health requirements should underpin food product development, to avoid costly regulatory surprises downstream.  It can be hard to keep up with changes to importing country rules and regulations, as these are constantly evolving.

► Finding it daunting and time-consuming to research the applicable overseas compliance standards for your product? 

Translating regulatory requirements and importing country requirements is our business. 

Although other countries may have different regulatory systems, New Zealand food enjoys preferential access to many overseas markets, thanks to our long history of supplying premium food to the world. Make sure you are in the picture to leverage the full benefits.
