Challenges of Current Food Labelling

Speaker: Maria Said, CEO, Allergy & Anaphylaxis Australia

Food allergy is potentially life threatening. We need food content information on labels so that we can make an informed decision when purchasing foods. Australians welcomed the change in legislation which states that the most common allergens must be clearly labelled, however the proliferation in ‘may contain’ statements continues to restrict food choices for consumers with food allergy. Maria Said will talk you through the challenges of current food labelling and what actions manufacturers and consumers can take to help increase food safety.
