In New Zealand and Australia, herbs, spices, herbal teas, tomatoes, capsicums and a range of tropical fruit are currently allowed to be irradiated. Probably this year we in New Zealand will have an even wider range of fresh fruit and vegetables irradiated, imported from Australia and other countries. Organic certification standards do not allow food irradiation.
