Submission to Food Standards Australia New Zealand on Proposal P1030: Formulated supplementary sports foods and electrolyte drinks

In September 2014, Cancer Council NSW on behalf of Cancer Council Australia responded to the Food Standards Australia New Zealand Proposal P1030 on formulated supplementary sports foods and electrolyte drinks.
