The five year review of the Health Star Rating system has been finalised, with the final review report tabled at the Australia and New Zealand Ministerial Forum on Food Regulation (Forum) on 16 August 2019.

The report can be found on the Reviews page by following this link.

Forum Ministers noted the HSR system is generally progressing well with uptake increasing, consumer use and understanding improving, consumers changing behaviour in response to the HSR, and evidence of industry reformulating foods. There is, however, significant opportunity to continue to improve the HSR system.

Forum Ministers will seek advice on the recommendations before making a formal decision at their next meeting in November 2019.
