Protecting and enhancing New Zealand’s reputation for world-leading food safety

The New Zealand Food Safety Science & Research Centre (NZFSSRC) was established to harness the best of scientific expertise from across industry, government and research providers.

Our aim is to provide an internationally credible science base for decision-making in public health and the food industry. Our work focuses on better ways of detecting hazards in the food production chain and reducing the risk of food-borne illness to consumers.
