Getting 'free range' on the political agenda

With the Victorian State Election fast approaching, we hope to get 'truth in labelling' and a meaningful definition of the term 'free range' on the political agenda.

Both are substantially Federal issues but our State Minister for Agriculture can play an active role at Ministerial council level.

Queensland has introduced regulations limiting stocking densities on farms claiming to be free range to 1500 hens per hectare – and there's no reason our State Government can't do the same.
