Allergen Bureau Awards for best practice food allergen management in Australia and New Zealand

The Allergen Bureau is thrilled to once again be collaborating with both the Australian Institute of Food Science and Technology (AIFST) and the New Zealand Institute of Food Science and Technology (NZIFST) to offer awards for best practice food allergen management in each of Australia and New Zealand.

In accordance with the Allergen Bureau Mission, the Selection Committees of both the Australian and New Zealand Awards will decide each award recipient based on their contribution to a consistent, science-based approach to food allergen risk assessment, management and communication that guides industry best practice and assists allergen sensitive consumers to make informed choices based on label information.

The Allergen Bureau encourages self-nomination from any person or organisation making a significant contribution to best practice food allergen management in Australia or New Zealand, respectively. The award recipients will gain ANZ and international recognition for their excellence in food allergen management.
