health foods


Our regulatory affairs consultants can help you figure out if your food meets the requirements for making a health claim. Our team is made up of former regulatory staff who are regulatory and technical experts that have worked in Australian food regulation.

We can help you to determine your NPSC score, determine appropriate nutrition content and health claims, undertake a systematic review to support your claims, and notify food/health relationships to FSANZ.

We will work with you to manage any food/medicine interface issues you may be experiencing with your health food products, including prebiotics, probiotics, and postbioitics and fibre. 

We can also help you to meet the requirements of the Australia New Zealand Food Standards Code, including for vitamins and minerals, nutrition and health claims, and special purpose foods.
