The NZHIA have written a letter to the 16 Food Ministers representing the Forum, 10 of whom will vote on Application A1039 low THC hemp foods in Jan or Feb 2014.
This letter was sent to encourage the Ministers to vote “YES” to the variation to the Food Standard put forward by FSANZ (Food Safety Australia New Zealand) on application A109. See attached letter from NZHIA NZHIA to Food Ministers 15 Janurary 2015
The NZHIA encourage supporters of the hemp industry to contact the ministers, to express their support. We have written a standard letter which can help you get started, see attached form letter A1039 support letter for public use Jan 2015 and ANZFSA Ministers contact details A 1039 Jan 2015 for the names, emails and address of the Ministers involved.
It is important that these Ministers hear from as many people/organisations as possible on this issue, please email the Ministers with your message of support to reinforce the importance of a “YES” vote to allow us access to this super food in Australia and New Zealand.
