What do the carbon footprint labels on foods reveal?



  1. 0 Votes

    The new carbon footprint labels on foods are supposed to reveal how much carbon was produced in the manufacture and transportation of food. According to the British Environment Secretary Hilary Benn, in future people will have to eat less “carbon intensive” foods like red meat or excessively packaged products to make sure Britain meets targets to cut greenhouse gases. Companies like Tesco, PepsiCo and other leading brands are already displaying a “carbon reduction label” on certain products showing the amount of carbon dioxide produced in grams in growing the food, packaging and transportation. As part of a new food strategy for the next 20 years, the Government calls on other brands to consider measuring the carbon footprint of goods as well as being more honest about where meat was bred and the standards of welfare.
