Event description

Description

This lecture examines how food standards and regulations effect international trade, and novel foods as a growing industry in New Zealand.


Topic 1: Food standards and their effects on international trade.

We'll examine how governments are modernising food safety systems to facilitate trade, recognising the complicated issues that are associated with international trade and how we provide assurances around food and food safety to our offshore partners.


Topic 2: Frameworks that support novel foods

A novel food is a type of food that has not had significant history of consumption. It could be anything from a man-made ingredient like lab-grown protein to a type of flour made from crushed crickets.

This lecture will cover what the New Zealand and Australian governments have been doing to understand and build appropriate legislation around novel foods and what frameworks can best support this growing industry.

Speakers:

  • Bryan Wilson, Deputy Director-General, New Zealand Food Safety

  • Dr Rod Lamberts, Deputy Director of the Australian National Centre for the Public Awareness of Science (CPAS) at the Australian National University.

  • Bruce Burdon, Manager, Market Access, International Policy and Trade
