  1. Food ingredients must be secret because if people found out about it, they could choose not to buy it. Good producers who are proud of their food seek publicity. Evil producers, seek secrecy. By the governments own admission, they choose to do business with evil producers.

  2. Wow new Zealand the right to know where your food is from common sense don't you think just amazing the government still protecting it's corporations thank you Green party

  3. That's sustainability for you. Pork gets flown into NZ, a country with thousands of farms that are monopolised by the government.
