Safe2eat Health Star Rating Consultants partner with you to determine the Health Star Rating of your products. Our team is passionate about helping you improve your Health Star Ratings where needed to ensure they are seen favourably be consumers and retailers alike.

Why is a Health Star Rating necessary?

Health Star ratings use an algorithm to score your product based on its nutritional content. The score penalises Energy, Saturated Fat Sugars and Sodium content and rewards Protein, Dietary Fibre, Fruit, Nut, Vegetable and Legume content. The points are tallied up and determine how many Stars your product gets. The Maximum or best Star rating is 5 Stars. Currently this is a voluntary code of practice to help consumers make healthier food choices. However, supermarkets are pushing that food must meet a minimum number of Stars to even get on the shelf. We expect over time every product will be expected to wear a Star Rating and legislation introduced to mandate it.
