Food Safety

Ensuring food produced in Tasmania's primary production and processing sectors is safe to eat is an important step in ensuring the wellbeing of consumers.

It is also important to the protection of Tasmania's reputation as a producer of safe and clean food to allow ongoing market access and premium prices for Tasmanian products. Information on food safety regulations and guidelines is available on the Depart ment of Primary Industries, Parks, Water and Environment website.
