Living foods work for your total wellbeing. The acids produced by these cultures can stimulate the immune system, alleviate bowel problems, assist anti-fungal actions and promote cell regeneration. Corporately created synthetic foods are creating epidemic health problems, yet our corporately sponsored government is enforcing strict food safety requirements on all living boutique food producers. Current government legislation is crushing these small businesses and the important idea that FOOD IS MEDICINE.

The Petition

Support us now! Sign this petition to ask the Victorian and QLD governments to come into line with Australian Food Standards to allow symbiotically fermented (traditional non-alcoholic) beverages to be classed as non-alcoholic beverages so we can get them into your local store.
