  • Industry has primary responsibility
  • Consumers have a right to be informed and the responsibility to handle food properly.
  • Government has a responsibility to:
      • set and enforce standards
      • to provide health and safety information to consumers;
      • to ensure that resources allocated to food inspection are effectively and efficiently managed, the result of which is the elimination of gaps, overlaps and duplication.
  • The system must
      • support industry competitiveness and market viability both domestically and international
      • be open, responsive and flexible
  • Standards will be outcome and performance-based where practical.
