In 2004, Roy Morgan Research was commissioned to conduct surveys on stakeholder use of the Australia New Zealand Food Standards Code across both Australia and New Zealand. The research aimed to evaluate how well the labelling and compositional standards in the new Code were working, with respect to the needs of the key stakeholders (food industry, enforcement officers and health professionals). Using telephone interviews and online surveys, the study investigated:
- awareness of the changes from the old regulations to the new Code,
- the main advantages and disadvantages of these changes,
- the ease of understanding the new Code (and as compared to the old Code),
- sources of information on food standards issues and their usefulness, and
- their involvement with developing food standards.
