Plant-based products labelled "meat" or "milk" will
have to be rebranded if the Federal Government is successful in lobbying for a
change of food standards.
Regional Services Minister Bridget
McKenzie will today ask a food regulation forum to back her bid to have Food
Standards Australia New Zealand (FSANZ) review terminology and crack down on
imitation and so-called fake foods.
Senator McKenzie said products
labelled meat and milk should only come from animals, like honey has to be a
pure product from bees.
"I want consumers to have confidence that when they
buy honey, it's honey — when they buy meat, it's beef from an animal and when
they buy milk, it is actually produced by a dairy cow," she said.
