Page last updated: 20 December 2019

On 27 June 2014, the Australia and New Zealand Ministerial Forum on Food Regulation (Forum) agreed that the Health Star Rating (HSR) system should be implemented voluntarily over five years with a review of the progress of implementation after two years. Subsequent to this decision, on 20 November 2015 members of the Forum agreed that a formal review of the system should also be carried out after five years of implementation.

The five year review of the HSR system (the Review) has now been completed.

The Forum have finalised their response to the HSR system five year review report and its recommendations for enhancing the HSR system. Forum Ministers noted that the HSR system is a useful tool to assist consumers in making healthy food choices, and agreed that it should continue with some amendments resulting from the review.

Consideration of outstanding issues and an implementation plan for agreed changes to the HSR system will be considered by the Forum in early 2020.
