Caveat Emptor

Caveat emptor - let the buyer beware.

Knowing where the ingredients of your food are from is something the consumers should begin to demand, either by influencing the food manufacturers or by law.

This basic right has been with human society since (if not before) the Roman time. The mass production of modern food has only one goal: to pursue the lowest possible price. But in the process, food producers and manufacturers have also made many short cuts and short changes and, in the end, compromise the purpose of having food, i.e., food safety.
