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 safety. 

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 Pack:

  • 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.

 The following pages need to be completed depending on the type of product you supply:

  • Suppliers of non-food (or food not intended for human consumption) must also complete Page 5. 
  • Suppliers of Food and Beverage products must complete page 4 and attach a copy of the relevant safety certificate.
  • Fresh produce suppliers must also complete page 9.
