|Title:||Labelling issues of organic and GM Foods in Australia||Contributor(s):||Chang, C (author)||Publication Date:||2005||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/478||Abstract:||Demand for organic foods has grown significantly in the past decade in Australia and overseas because of perceived health and environment benefits. Organic products often commend a price premium, which has resulted in the abuse of the organic label by unscrupulous marketers. Despite years of lobbying by the industry, no domestic control exists. By contrast, the labelling of GM foods is mandatory soon after the debate started. This paper examines the arguments for and against mandatory labelling of organic and GM foods in Australia, compares the political and marketing environments confronting them, and assesses the appropriateness of the differing regulatory responses.||Publication Type:||Journal Article||Source of Publication:||Australasian Agribusiness Perspectives (67), p. 1-11||Publisher:||University of Melbourne||Place of Publication:||Melbourne, Australia||ISSN:||1833-5675||Field of Research (FOR):||140201 Agricultural Economics||HERDC Category Description:||C1 Refereed Article in a Scholarly Journal||Other Links:||http://www.agrifood.info/perspectives/2005/Chang.html||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 103
