The recommendations contained in the Review Report are designed to address some of the key criticisms of the current system. The key recommendations from the report are that:
- the HSR system continue as a voluntary system with the addition of some specific industry uptake targets and that the Australian, state and territory and New Zealand governments support the system with funding for a further four years;
- that changes are made to the way the HSR is calculated to better align with Dietary Guidelines, and including fruit and vegetables into the system; and
- that some minor changes are made to the governance of the system, including transfer of the HSR calculator to Food Standards Australia New Zealand.
