When food labelling is designed to truly institute greater transparency and accountability in food production, it can be a powerful tool to drive food system change.
Food labelling regulatory reform is needed to address the public and institutional interests to make information relating to food safety and standards and food system sustainability available to everyone. It is also an important policy tool to drive societal shifts to deliver the UK’s long-term net-zero commitments.
