Review of added sugar labelling

FSANZ has started the process of research and consultation on how to make labelling of sugar in foods and drinks clearer and easier to understand.

 In August 2019, food regulation ministers asked FSANZ to review nutrition labelling for added sugars. This was in response to a policy paper which found that information about added sugars on food labels is limited and/or unclear.

FSANZ has commenced work on a review to look at whether and how the Food Standards Code should be amended to help consumers make more informed choices about added sugars in food. The review will include an assessment of added sugars labelling options, international approaches, and technical issues (e.g. how to define added sugars). Key stakeholders will be consulted during the review.
