We are concerned that carbon labels for food are being done without community consultation. Carbon labels have up to now meant a professional making value judgments (should we omit methane, should we omit packaging etc). Do you agree that farmers & growers should be making those value judgement about what to measure?

45% (46) I agree
30% (31) I disagree
24% (25) I don't know

17% (18) Yes, so much so that I would like to be involved in the steering group
46% (49) Yes
20% (22) No
15% (16) Don't know
