Preserving – Food Labelling

In our final workshop of the preserving series Liz Griffiths will take you through the basics of food labelling and food labelling laws in Australia. In this 1.5 hour workshop Liz will touch on CoOL (country of origin labelling), allergens, weights, measures and more.

Liz will provide links to a range of online tools available for anyone wanting to preserve and label their own food. You will also see the process of producing your own labels using only a home computer and inkjet printer, Avery labels and the Internet. This is a fast paced workshop but don’t be afraid, Liz will be there to guide you.

About the Series

Taking in salting, picking (vinegar), jam making (sugar), fermenting, drying and food labelling, this range of workshops is at the heart of Slow Food’s philosophy which includes reduced food waste and eating local produce. They will help you to understand how to extend the life of the produce that is right here at our doorstep. Preserving our local produce when it is in season (and when there is ample available) means we can have that food when it is out of season and without it having to travel half way around the world to get to our plate. Now that’s sustainability!

The Preserving Series covers five preserving methods and ends with a food labelling workshop:
Salting in July – 2 hour workshop (Jul 8). Workshop completed.
