Food labels: buy and don't buy

WWF Switzerland, in association with the Animal-protection Organization „VIER PFOTEN“ and the Foundation for Consumer’s Protection, tested the most important and known food labels, by the criteria of “Ecology”, “Animal well-being”, “Control”, as well as social criteria such as working-time, salary, and healthprotection.

As fifth criteria came the processing, with particular attention on the E-numbers.

Most imporant result was that Biolabels are clearly on top!

Here are the classifications resulted from the test, so people, pay attention to these brands when you go shopping, especially in this time of dinners and parties before Christmas and New Year’s Eve!
Try not to buy anything from those marked with no stars!! We might succed in changing the company’s policy in matter ecological production!

Thanks for this interesting and important information! It's good to know there's so many labels with 3 stars!!!!

Well, the bad news is to discover the ones who do not have stars, or have just one.... I was astonished by discovering how careful it would be better to be even by simply buying some food for the week. It's a difficult world!
gosh.

hugs and thanks for comment!
