MPI support for industry

MPI is committed to working together with industry to create a robust health claims system which builds confidence towards international market acceptability by international regulatory authorities. We're available to assist you on a strictly confidential basis, along the way to self-substantiation.

How MPI can help you

MPI can confidentially evaluate your scientific dossier to self-substantiate a health claim when it's completed. You can get in touch to understand how to prepare for the scientific evaluation. 

We continue to regularly engage with the food industry to explain how:

  • all aspects of Standard 1.2.7 work in practice
  • to take advantage of market opportunities and maximise exports through self-substantiation.

For all enquiries, email health.claims@mpi.govt.nz
