Greens’ Animal Welfare and Consumer Affairs spokesperson Tammy Franks has welcomed the passage of her Food (Labelling of Free Range Eggs) Amendment Bill through the Legislative Council today. This is step forward towards ensuring consumer certainty, a fair go for fair dinkum free range farmers and a step up for animal welfare standards in SA.
Greens’ Animal Welfare and Consumer Affairs spokesperson Tammy Franks MLC has welcomed the complaint made by the consumer watchdog organisation CHOICE to the NSW Office of Fair Trading calling for a crack-down on free range eggs.
The news that Queensland has announced changes to its free-range egg legislation is a backwards step for animal welfare and a call to action for South Australia to legislate to ensure adequate animal welfare standards and consumer certainty, says Greens Animal Welfare and Consumer Affairs spokesperson Tammy Franks.
