Increasingly, consumers desire information about the health, safety, environmental, and socioeconomic characteristics of food products; therefore, consumers must use food labels to select products that meet their needs and preferences. Due to this need for accurate, uniform labels, governments are faced with challenges on how to ensure labels are not misleading.
In response to consumer demand for information about the health, safety, environmental, and socioeconomic characteristics of food products, governments are challenged with the development of accurate, uniform labels that are not misleading.
