Where are the apples in your juice from?
Erica's Adventures I spent July in Scotland.
Their labels on produce (e.g., a pack of strawberries)
not only said the country where it was grown but the name of the farmer as well!
I loved it and it encouraged me to buy local. I actually started to get familiar with
the small differences between the varieties produced by different farms.
Even processed foods had an emphasis on local ingredients on their labels
(e.g., a bag of chips has a label stating "100% Great British Potatoes").
Companies should start voluntarily labeling when using local sources.
I'd certainly seek them out to support them if so.
N Shaw That lady's a bold-faced liar listen to her response and reply most likely she's taking
a huge payout from these companies to be so evasive deceptive and ignoring the truth.
Tony Tan That lady from the Food Label Agency is definitely getting lobbied.
Crazy the power a lobbyist has.

have been sourced and made. If it's made in Australia, it has to show what percentage of the ingredients are Australian and what percentage if any is from what countries.
If the labels don't have that information, you can't sell it in Australia.
is just came into force July 1st, 2018.
Like a lawyer being technically right would piss anyone off. Just listen to what she says.
A sneaky advertisement is a problem
No more "imported by" with no mention of where the product came from, no more
"Canada's favorite". Many Canadians would prefer to buy Canadian like me.
And there are so many products I no longer buy because it's too confusing.
As for apple juice, all of our local companies have been bought out by Lassonde
and they no longer have Canadian products. I buy apple cider which is produced locally.
herbicide laws and those that do not have as restrictive or better should not be allowed to provide apples for consumption in Canada. Even the rep's country of origin or even residence might not be Canada. Consumer protection in Canada is designed to be useless.
(guess who made it up), that states if a company in Canada spends 51 % of the value of
the product value that they call it a product of Canada. For example, if these industries
buy fish from China for 10 cents, they make sure that they spend 11 cents to have it
processed in Canada, then call it a product of Canada, leading consumers to believe it
was caught in Canadian waters by Canadian fisherman.
The cities are a bit more polluted but that's mostly in the air from the coal-based energy they use, but that's all being phased out in the next few decades.
Their agriculture industry is not as mechanized so they use less chemicals than here.
We try to grow, as much as possible, on as little land as possible.
So, we use more chemicals and GMO foods to achieve that. I would be fine eating produce from China because food safety is a priority there due to past food scandals.
That's the cost of rapid modernization. As a result, they have stricter regulations and far more food inspections.
At the moment, I would avoid seafood, especially shellfish and seaweed around Japan and Korea due to the Fukushima pouring out tons of radioactive waste into the surrounding waters.
This show is just trying to get more viewerships by bringing up China which draws up people's fear from past memory of China's food scandal.
Food scandals happen everywhere. We just had a romaine/e-coli problem.
After watching this, I guess I'll have to bust out my own juicer for the occasional glass.
Thank you Marketplace for keeping us informed
Juices made from Concentrate are made with ingredients that have been shipped GLOBALLY.
This means that most Concentrated juices have randomly generated ingredients from the cheapest sources.
It's just sugar water with fruit favor as all vitamin were all gone during the process and
they will add vitamin back later.
There's nothing fresh about juice...
She says that’s the problem, and not the fault of these mega companies totally
mislabeling and falsely advertising lol wow unreal.
Just a clear example of these corporations controlling government
They pick the information that is the most important to the consumer. I think we collectively
have to learn how to read labels more carefully. Even if we change the labeling rules,
the industry will always find a way to try to mislead the customers.
What Happens If You Drink A glass Of Apple Juice Everyday
Fruit pulp preparation - dosing units, elevators, mills.
Enjoy the demonstration of the production process of apple juice and machines used in it.
