Supermarket Power and Transparency


Supermarket Power and Transparency

The supermarket duopolies dominate the Australian food landscape and the negatives associated with this kind of power are well documented. However, exciting new systems for accessing food are now emerging and we as consumers hold all the power in making this new ‘fair food’ economy a reality.

We're bringing together Australia’s leading experts on Supermarket Power and food labelling to discuss:

  • Why supermarkets ‘tilt’ the food system in favour of cheap food and unsustainable practices.
  • How a lack of transparency in labelling has created uncertainty and vagueness that can be exploited to fool consumers and make a quick profit.
  • When up to 80% of food in Australia is bought at the supermarket, what kind of disruptive models can tip the balance in the other direction?

A light supper of local, seasonal produce will give you the chance to break bread with other like minded foodies in your community.




The workshop will be held within The Field Institute gallery; a dedicated space to test and explore the complex world of food and farming.
