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 will examine the regulation of food labeling in Australia through a focus on free range labelled eggs and animal products. It will shed light on the dynamics of how a network of food producers, retailers, private certificationorganisations, and regulatory agencies are responding to changing demands for ethical and quality foods. The project will develop new strategies for a more effective, legitimate and stakeholder-inclusive approach to regulating food labels.
