Country of origin food labeling bill passes third reading!

Poaka New Zealand Flag
Poaka Free Range Pork, born and farmed in Canterbury, New Zealand!

It’s a little known fact that over 85 percent of the pork used in bacon and ham sold in New Zealand comes from overseas countries, and 95 percent of that’s from countries with worse animal welfare standards than New Zealand! This new Country of origin food labeling allows the New Zealand consumer to know exactly where the pork used to make the bacon and ham really came from.  Of course all our products use only pork bred and farmed in Canterbury, New Zealand by us!

Poaka features in Stuff
