The magazine retains a scientific review board to enable occasional publication of peer reviewed papers.
Food New Zealand was launched in 2000, building on the foundations established by New Zealand Food Journal (Journal of the New Zealand Institute of Food Science and Technology (NZIFST)) and Dairy Technology, the publication of the Dairy Industry Association of New Zealand (DIANZ) which were discontinued as independent magazines.
Food New Zealand is published by Peppermint Press Limited. Principals are Anne Scott, Managing Editor, and David Pooch, both graduate food technologists and long-time NZIFST members with significant experience in publishing and business.
