Formal review of the Health Star Rating System

A government advisory committee has released a revamped Health Star Rating calculator that attempts to address various problems with the original, from the over-emphasis on protein to the lack of focus on sugar, as part of a five-year review.

The government has engaged Matthews Pegg Consulting to conduct the five-year review at a cost of $400,000. The reviewer is seeking feedback on the preferred changes, which are embodied in the improved “test” calculator.

You can make a submission to Matthews Pegg Consulting is accepting submissions until Friday, December 7.

It will publish a draft report for public comment in early 2019, and then present a final report to the Australia and New Zealand Ministerial Forum on Food Regulation later in the year.
