The first thing that struck me was the following quote (highliting is mine):

Food Regulation 2015 is due for repeal in 2021 and in this edition, we invite food businesses to have a say on how their business and industry is regulated. This new and important piece of legislation is due to be updated in 2022 and aims to enhance the effectiveness of the previous outline, which sought to achieve a better balance between maximising food safety outcomes for consumers while minimising regulatory costs of regulation on business.

What about other stakeholders? Where is the consumer input? Profit before people?

It appears to be another example of industry being asked to self-regulate without any real regard to consumers. And we know how well industry self regulation has worked with banks, nursing homes, etc.
