Buy Australian: Labeling changes now
We want to buy Australian, we would if we could, but the labeling laws allow too many convoluted ways to claim Australian, but they are imported. Jason Morrison on truth in labeling and changes needed immediately.

This is all approved by Politicians. Good for the country aren't they!Evil triumphs when good men say nothing! Friday 24 February, 2012 - 7:06 PM
Like thats going to happen!
Importers and the supermarkets will fight tooth and nail to stop any packaging laws being changed. Once the consumer knows what cheap foreign crap is being imported and served up to them as Australian produce all hell would break loose.Peter Friday 24 February, 2012 - 4:20 PM
This is blatant, widespread fraud and deception. There are people in gaol for much less. Surely there is a breach of the Crimes Act! But evidently the Canberra movers and shakers could not care less about Australia! Labor-Tony Bourke; I am sick to death of these bloody rotten, inferior chinese apples and the now poor quality Golden Circle pineapple juice etc that used to be so damned good. Heartbreaking!Heinz Friday 24 February, 2012 - 11:34 AM
well written JM & Janice, I purchase products only made in Australia from Dick Smith groceries and Only Oz products, both deliver to the door, maybe a little extra cost but buy in bulk and enjoy the healthier produce choice of Aussie produce from Aussie farmers who are legislated way more than foreign lands who sell us s---t to eat, while they laugh at us all the way to their foreign banks. Changeover it makes a world of difference to yourself and your family to sell the best produce Australia can make - Support Australia !Ches Thursday 23 February, 2012 - 7:13 PM
Welcome to the wonders of globalisation. It was Howard who was ramming globalisation down our throats in the 90s. In a very similar way that Bob Hawke was ramming multiculturalism down our throats in the 80s. Lets face it people, there is no democracy.Robert Thursday 23 February, 2012 - 5:53 PM
i am always looking at labels in supermarkets trying to find something Australian. The majority of labels say's Made in Australia from impurted ingrediants.
If you look at all the own brand labels they are usually made in Thialand or China.
I have stopped buying Colgate toothpast as its made in China. I use to buy Callipo ice blocks again made in China.
i wish more people would do the same and start reading the labels and looking for Australian owned made from Australian ingrediants. They are out there.
