Food Labelling and Democratic Engagement in the Food System

A 2-day workshop on food labelling was held at Melbourne Law School on 28-29 September 2017.

The workshop papers and discussion generated some clear themes in response to the framing question How does food labelling shape the food system and how is it shaped by the food system?

A summary of the workshop papers and discussion is available here.
