As a relative newcomer to Australia (i'm in WA) I am dismayed by the lack of "Suitable for Vegetarians" labelling on products that is very common in UK. Everything there is labelled, even stuff like tins of Maccoroni Cheese has a Green "V" if it is friendly.
I have just written to Woolworths to ask why they have just changed their Vintage cheese from Non-animal rennet to the animal stuff and after buying some Noble Rise bread (Outback spice and grains) I find in the ingredients it has Chicken Stock in it!! I don,t really expect to find this in a loaf of bread.
Is there any way to lobby for better labelling of products? Hopefully Vegetarianism is a growing market and so it would be in the manufacturers favour to do so.
Also can anybody tell me why animal rennet is used rather than non-animal? Is it cost or something?
