Italy’s new food label: “Mafia-free”
Thanks to Anulu Mass of the Global Post for telling me about the latest front-of-package foods labeling initiative, this one from Italy. I’m just back from lecturing in Rome, Milan, and Vicenza, but didn’t get to Sicily which must be why I missed seeing Libera Terra labels on wine, olive oil, pasta, and tomato sauce. Libera Terra labels guarantee that the foods were produced with no mob connections. I’m so relieved.
Trick or treat?
