Campylobacter kswfoodworld

The 2020 –2021 Action Plan incorporates a risk-based, whole-of-food chain approach to identification, selection and implementation of new control measures that will significantly reduce the foodborne campylobacteriosis burden in New Zealand.

The Action Plan includes: prioritisation of selected actions for immediate evaluation/implementation; identification of a further list of potential control measures on the basis of current knowledge, and establishing a framework for their systematic evaluation, prioritisation and implementation; setting of a public health improvement goal for the reduction of foodborne campylobacteriosis; and a lead in to medium-term control measures that will likely be implemented in out-years 2022 –2023.

New Zealand Food Safety will be primarily responsible for agreed actions and reporting against the work schedule. Industry will have responsibility for implementing both legislated and non-legislated actions.
