This organic butter in the supermarket on Smith St is labeled in a misleading and deceptive manner. It implies it is Australian made when it actually comes from New Zealand (not that I have anything against New Zealand). I believe this is against the law (or if it only bends the rules it should be outlawed).

    Our labelling laws suck big hairy dogs’ balls.
    Foodstuffs can be imported from China, repacked in NZ/Oz and claimed to be Kiwi or Aussie…unless harried customers take the time to read the fine print on the packaging which 9 times out of 10 does not happen.

    I looked at a pack of mandarins from one of the leading supermarkets and was unable to establish where they were produced as the label stated nothing else than advertisement and meaningless numbers. Labelling laws in Australia are de facto non-existent.
