What we do
The FBIA represents and promotes the interests of food importers with government agencies and key stakeholders to minimise the impact of regulations while achieving the government’s public policy objectives.
How we do it
The FBIA works with regulators to influence the development of standards and regulatory controls to minimise the impact on importers and to achieve good public policy objectives.
