Deregulation for food manufacturers

The Commonwealth’s Deregulation Task Force will make trimming regulations governing food manufacturing one of its priority areas.

Other priority areas include making it easier for sole traders and micro businesses to employ their first person, and getting major infrastructure projects up and running sooner, Treasurer Josh Frydenberg said.

The task force will work with state and territory governments and businesses to reduce significant regulatory barriers to investment, such as by noting the time taken for approvals across all levels of government, and whether technology can help businesses navigate and comply with regulations.
