Celebrity foodie falls afoul of ACCC over food labelling

CELEBRITY foodie Maggie Beer has landed in a pickle over misleading product labels.

The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission found labels on ice-cream, biscuits, vinegar and olive oil misrepresented their place of origin.

The labelling included "Maggie Beer A Barossa Food Tradition" and an address in Tanunda, in South Australia.

However, the products from the company's ice-cream range, extra virgin olive oil, aged red wine vinegar and rosemary and verjuice biscuits were made by companies in Victoria and Qld.

ACCC chairman Rod Sims said on Tuesday the ruling also related to correspondence between Maggie Beer Products and Woolworths supermarkets.

The company co-operated with the ACCC's investigation and will amend its labelling.
