Lupins as food allergen mandatory

On 25th May 2017, Lupins have been confirmed for mandatory allergen labelling by Food Standards Australia New Zealand (FSANZ). GIWA supports this mandatory labelling, as part of the growth for the high value specialty health food market segment for lupins as food. Industry has 12 months to 26th May 2018 to comply with labelling requirements.
