Normativas y regulaciones para exportar alimentos a Nueva Zelanda
New Zealand has strict biosecurity rules for plant and animal products but also imports large volumes of food and beverage products. This report outlines regulatory requirements for food and agricultural products exported to New Zealand. Key recent changes include regulations relating to organic foods, as well as the introduction of country-of-origin labeling for some products.
New Zealand is a growing market for U.S. agricultural products. However, New Zealand has very strict biosecurity rules and unprocessed products cannot be imported into New Zealand unless an import health standard has been developed for that product.
Import Health Standards specify the biosecurity requirements that must be met for trade to occur. The Import Health Standard database can be seen here.
All imported foods must comply with all aspects of Food Act and Food Standards Code at the point of entry into New Zealand. The Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI) performs random inspections on any food imported. High-risk foods can be targeted for inspection at a higher frequency.
In recent years New Zealand has made changes to its labelling requirements to include statements regarding foods containing allergy causing components such as lupin and peanuts. New Zealand also made some major changes to alcohol labelling with the introduction of the requirement to mandate that all alcohol, must have a stated pregnancy warning. New Zealand has not required this is in the past.
