WHAT WE'RE DOING ABOUT ... SELF-REGULATION
The NZBC has in place a Code of Practice aimed at ensuring members adhere to best industry practice including accurate and truthful labelling on all products and compliance with all relevant legislation and food safety standards.
All NZBC members have signed up to this Code and have agreed to abide by its provisions.
That means over 95 per cent of non-alcoholic beverages sold in New Zealand are supplied by NZBC members who are signatories to the Code.
Compliance is monitored by an Industry Compliance Committee (ICC) and a rigorous testing programme carried out by independent consultants and testing facilities.
In addition the NZBC has a Compliance Standard Logo which members can use to demonstrate to consumers that they can have full confidence that products which carry the logo comply in full with all relevant legislation and regulation.
