SA wines might get labour labels

Cape Town - Wine farmers may have to label their products to indicate they were produced under fair labour conditions, Trade and Industry Minister Rob Davies has said, Beeld reported on Thursday.

"The government is continuously busy promoting our interests and products internationally, but at home we expect to see progress as far as issues like ethical trade practices are concerned," he was quoted as saying.

Davies said he would take the label issue further, and that it might amount to farmers being compelled to put labels on their products assuring consumers the wines were produced under humane labour conditions.

Davies said he was not at all surprised by the protests by Western Cape farmworkers.
