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. There are more than 20 food assurance schemes operating in the UK, each using different logos stamped on the packaging of products such as milk, eggs and meat. The review was commissioned by the FSA last November and included 18 schemes, which between them had about 78,000 members and covered over 85% of eggs, milk, chicken, pork and crops production, and over 65% of beef, lamb, and horticultural production.
