UK: FSA report slams food assurance schemes - more confusing than reassuring
The UK Food Standards Agency (FSA) published a report yesterday [Tuesday] attacking the myriad of food assurance schemes, claiming that they should be "radically reformed" because they often leave shoppers more confused than reassured.
