Defining Food Labels

An environmental committee has a definition of “sustainable agriculture” in the works.

An unfortunate truth is that as consumers, we sometimes cannot fully trust package labels. What’s labeled as “green” may be anything but what the name denotes. In efforts to turn things around, the Leonardo Academy—a group of self-proclaimed “sustainability experts”—is in the midst of mediating the debate on how to define “sustainable agriculture.” This is a label that may be stamped on foods in the same manner “organic” is placed on so many packages seen today. Labeling woes are only one facet of the overall project named “Sustainable Agriculture Standard Development.” With this plan, the group hopes to establish standards by which success or failure of sustainability of an agricultural crop can be measured. Once the labels are fully defined, consumers will be able to determine whether the product is enough to sustain them—both mentally and physically.
