New Australian Food Labeling Laws Finally Make it to Market

Tuesday 2 May 2017

Some of you may have noticed Federal Government advertising for the Food Labeling Laws. What few people will know is that the model being put out there is pretty much the EXACT model I proposed back in the year 2000. Which just goes to show that to predict the future, sometimes all you have to do is wait. Well not quite but

it is fair to say that if you can pay attention to what is going on around you, making suggestions or well informed guesses about potential outcomes are NOT difficult. What is difficult is

a) Getting the date right

b) Getting people to believe you

c) Preventing your own biases that stop you from taking action.

That last one is particularly challenging for businesses looking to move into, or exit, existing markets. Companies that lack a way to have their own biases and filters (blinkers) removed will continue to pursue offerings long since past their used-by date. Sometimes you need an internal provocateur, the Court Jester, and sometimes you bring the Court Jester in from outside to challenge your thinking and understanding. Knowing the future is intimately doable.

For those interested in my year 2000 self publication ideas piece 'A Blueprint to Advance Australia Collectively' click the link to see a whole range of ideas on Australia's future. That document was sent to every major Australian Political Party at the time and more recently was sent to Nick Xenophon due to his role on the committee looking to change Australia's food labeling laws. Oh and as it's the original, the contact details in that document are no longer accurate. But you know where to find me :-)

Why the Future of Vertical Farming is Two Decades Ahead of Expectations
Wednesday 2 February 2022
Like lab grown meats, Vertical Farming is going to be part of the future of food. For now it might be best to compare them to small scale battery storage on the electrical grid that can help balance out spikes of demand in the system and provide an output directly where needed.
