Food Writers New Zealand Handbook

Welcome to our revised and updated on-line handbook. It is presented in separate sections and you should use the Bookmarking tool to find your way quickly to the page you want. You can read these on-screen or save them to your computer as .pdf files.
We’ve come a long way since 1991 when our first handbook was produced with the purpose of providing a reference tool to establish standards for New Zealand food writers. In 1999 the handbook was updated to reflect the growing needs of members and now, in keeping with the general transition to digital media, the printed version has given way to a new on-line version for improved accessibility.
Food Writers New Zealand is indebted to our hardworking, talented, innovative and active contributors who provided their specialist input for this latest edition.
