What is a Health Star Rating?

The Health Star Rating is a front-of-pack labelling system that rates the overall nutritional profile of packaged food and assigns it a rating from ½ a star to 5 stars. It provides a quick, easy, standard way to compare similar packaged foods. The more stars, the healthier the choice.

Who developed the Health Star Rating System?

The development of the Health Star Rating system has been jointly funded by Australian, state and territory governments. It is being implemented from June 2014 on a voluntary basis by the food industry over the next five years, with a review of progress after two years and a formal review at five years.
