Product Safety and Recall
At Foodstuffs, we are committed to ensuring that all the
products we sell are safe. Our members have rigorous
processes to ensure that they act in accordance with the
legislation and regulations that control food and product
Everyone supplying products to our stores must also comply with
regulations from MPI and other relevant legislation. To
ensure that you understand the requirements that relate to your
products, we need you to complete the Compliance Pack. This
shows that you are aware of the product safety requirements and
agree to meet them.
We ask for a list of the products you intend to supply so that
we can check your safety certification matches the products.
Our Food Safety team needs to know if you expand your range as this
may require a new Food Safety certificate.
Everyone needs to complete the following pages in our Compliance
- Pages 6, 7 and 8 - these relate to the products you intend to
supply, the type of packaging and labelling, and that you will be
seeking approval for those products prior to selling them.
- Page 10, 12 and 13 - these relate to our policies for receiving
product, Product Recalls via GS1 ProductRecallNZ and the cost
recovery policy for recalls.
