Have you ever heard the saying you should never judge a food by its label? Probably not since labels are supposed to give you useful information about the food within. What happens when that doesn’t hold true?
This week on Meat and Three we’re looking at instances where labels mislead consumers; whether that’s claims of environmentalism, beautiful imagery used to obscure real practices, or food deliberately put in the wrong package. Tune in to learn when companies are lying to you and get some ideas for shopping more sustainably.
