Defra has just published the findings of research, undertaken by University of Hertfordshire, the Policy Studies Institute (PSI) and the Food Ethics Council (FEC). The report is entitle “Effective approaches to environmental labelling of food products".

The aim of the research was to investigate practicality and effectiveness of environmental labelling of food as a mechanism to promote behavioural change so as to reduce the negative environmental impacts of food production and consumption. It also sought to compare the pros and cons of different labelling formats, including omni-labels, and to assess the potential burden, particularly costs, that introducing such a label would have on industry including food producers and exporters.
