New Zealand.—No jam is exported from New Zealand at the present time, all that is produced in the Dominion or imported being used in the Dominion itself. The Statistics of Factory Production give the figures for jams and jellies produced in the Dominion, which we have expressed here in round tons:—1927, 3,300 tons; 1928, 3,600 tons; 1929, 2,600 tons; 1930, 2,400 tons, the decrease being balanced by an increase in the production of Fruit Pulp and Canned Fruit in the Dominion itself, and imported jam and fruit jelly largely from the United Kingdom, and the Union of South Africa. The New Zealand Act on which the regulations are based is the Sale of Food and Drugs Act, 1908, No. 167. Sec. 2 of the Act says “Food” includes every article which is used for food or drink by man, or which enters into or is used in the composition or preparation of any such article, and also includes flavouring matters and condiments.
