Veg Labeling In New Zealand

New Zealanders are asking for vegetarian labeling on food products.

Members of Parliament in New Zealand have been told that the government's new food bill is discriminating against vegetarians and groups with dietary restrictions such as Hindus and Muslims. Members of the primary product selection committee are lobbying for labeling on foods that specifies "suitable for vegetarians/vegans." The new bill was put in place to cover foods that were "offensive" to be labeled unsuitable for veg diets. "There is nowhere in the bill that 'offensive' is classified, but to a vegetarian, an animal products would be offensive," committee member Scott Inglis said.
