REGULATING FOOD LABELS: THE CASE OF FREE RANGE FOOD PRODUCTS IN AUSTRALIA

Grant number: DP150102168 | Funding period: 2016 - 2019

Completed

Abstract

The food label has become an important site of contestation and controversy with respect to a range of health, safety, environmental and ethical issues across the food system. This project aims to examine the regulation of food labelling in Australia through a focus on free range labelled eggs and animal products. It aims to shed light on the dynamics of how a network of food producers, retailers, private certification organisations and regulatory agencies are responding to changing demands for ethical and quality foods. The project is expected to develop new strategies for a more effective, legitimate and stakeholder-inclusive approach to regulating food labels.
