NZ: Food labelling review – FOE’s submission

A review into the labelling of food in Australia and New Zealand is currently underway.  FOE made a submission, along with thousands of other groups and individuals.

We call for the introduction of a single, mandatory food labelling system that enables consumers to readily distinguish more healthy from less healthy food.  We also call for consumer education to make sure people know how the labelling system works.

The final report of the Review of Food Labelling Law and Policy is due to the Australia and New Zealand Food Regulation Ministerial Council in late 2010 and to the Council of Australian Governments in early 2011.
