Application Deadline & Deemed FSPs

The Food Act registration application deadline, 30 November 2018, is almost here. This deadline covers a number of businesses, including those which are still on deemed Food Safety Plans (FSPs).

Food Control Plans

  • Manufacturers of vegetable protein and other protein products
  • Businesses with a deemed food control plan

We’re aware some deemed FSP businesses are having trouble finding evaluators, so the Ministry for Primary Industries is offering to act as the evaluator for these businesses, so long as they haven’t made any significant changes in their business since their last verification. If this fits your requirements please email MPI on
