Not On the Label: What Really Goes into the Food on Your Plate
THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER THAT SHOWED US WHAT WAS REALLY IN OUR FOOD
In 2004 Felicity Lawrence published her ground-breaking book, Not on the Label , where, in a series of undercover investigations she provided a shocking account of what really goes into the food we eat. She discovered why beef waste ends up in chicken, why a single lettuce might be sprayed six times with chemicals before it ends up in our salad, why bread is full of water.
And she showed how obesity, the appalling conditions of migrant workers, ravaged fields in Europe and the supermarket on our high street are all intimately connected. And, when the horsemeat scandal hit the headlines in 2013, she uncovered how the great British public ended up eating horses.
Her discoveries would change the way we thought about the UK food industry for ever.
