About Me
I'm a Melbourne boy, hailing from St Kilda with one ex, one current wife and four kids. Love the outdoors and making new discoveries. I cook a lot at home (cheers from wife) and do some preserving, mostly jams, pickles and fruit liqueurs. This is the diary of a cooking journey.

Have Your Say
I'm interested in your experiences regarding food packaging and pictures and have created a poll so you can have your say. Please take the time to fill it out as I may seek some answers from the relevant authority in charge of overseeing food packaging claims and pictures. It's really quite topical, now that GlaxoSmithKline has gone into damage control with a new advertisement about the Ribena scandal.

Is There Truth In Food Labeling?
Have you ever been deceived by food labels or pictures?
Have you ever complained about it?
Should the relevant authority be more proactive in enforcement of the law?
Are you happy with the relevant authorities current approach?
Are you unhappy with the relevant authorities current approach?
Should changes be made to the relevant laws?
Should food manufactures be more accountable?

Hi there Neil, thanks for doing this. Yes I have been taken in by food labelling and pictures, have complained and had very little satisfaction.

Part of the problem here is FSANZ (Food Standards Australian New Zealand) are horrendously under-funded. Holding food manufacturers accountable takes money and they just don't have it.

While Choice do a lot of good work in highlighting the misinformation and discrepancies, they have little actual regulatory power. Whereas the food manufacturers have both money and power.

Current food labelling laws are complex, with many exclusions, many of which the manufacturers have had a say in.

I'm really interested to know how you go with the authorities.

Hi kathryn, it should be interesting to say the least. I'm hoping the Ribena scandal has them thinking a bit more about things.
