Food labeling more costly?

From the change list: “Mortgage tax relief now less costly to implement, Food labelling slightly more costly.”

Agree on the mortgage tax relief, but food labelling more costly? Why? Is this a typo? Labeling of food shouldn’t be that controversial, at least compared to junk food tax. The public will get far more worked up about being financially penalized for something that they will about a bit of labelling. It would probably annoy some lobbyists, and there might be campaign funding consequences for that, but this isn’t something anyone can kick a stink up about publicly.


No, if you think about this scaling up, then you think of burden it places on both manufactures and the government for enforcing it accurately. Makes sense to me.
