New rules for sale of raw milk

June 25, 2015 at 11:58 AM

The Minister for Food Safety has announced a new policy on the production and sale of raw milk (from any milking animal) to consumers. As of 1 March 2016, raw milk can be sold directly from the farmer to consumers either at the farm or via home deliveries provided suppliers meet certain criteria. 

Currently the law restricts sales of raw milk to the farm, with a limit of five litres per person. As of 1 March 2016, there will be no limit on the amount farmers can sell to an individual or the amount they can sell overall. MPI will develop specific production requirements that all farmers selling raw milk to consumers will have to meet.

In the coming months, MPI will be engaging with some sellers of raw milk on the technical details of these requirements to ensure they can be practically implemented. There will be a transition period from 1 March 2016 for suppliers to adapt their operations if necessary.
