Sports columnist Tracey Twigg says she’s concerned that food trade mags are going too far and should be banned.
“I just think that food has become so social.
Food is a lot of people’s conversation, and I think that’s where people are making mistakes and we need to be a bit more sensitive about it,” she said.
Tigg is one of the most outspoken critics of the National Food Centre and the National Dairy Council, the major food and dairy lobby groups.
She said she found their advertising and advocacy campaign “incredibly insulting”.
“They’re not being true to what they say they are.
It’s a complete misrepresentation of the food trade.”
And they’re not trying to help the dairy industry.
They’re trying to destroy the food industry and their brand,” she told the ABC.
Teg is a regular columnist for Sports Illustrated and she has called out other media outlets for their coverage of the trade.
She said that while she is critical of the groups, they were the ones to blame for the problems.”
They just want to be the voice of reason, the voice that says, ‘We’re not going to get upset because we’re not the only people who want to see a change in the trade, we just don’t want to.’
“And that’s why they’re just going to do whatever they can to get what they want.”
Teg said she’s heard from other journalists who were told by their bosses they were not allowed to write about the trade on their publications.
“That’s what I think is the biggest problem,” she added.
It is not just a food trade, it’s about people, it is about community, it has to be about the environment, it needs to be all about what people are willing to pay for. “
Because that is what food is all too often about.
“So, I think it’s very important that you just have a conversation and try and work out if they’re being accurate and what their position is.””
