Artificial colourings dropped from Aldi shelves

The discount chain Aldi has been the first major Australian retailers to remove all artificial colourings from its product range.

Reports from Coles and Woolworths suggest they will be soon to follow, by removing artificial colourings from home brand products.

Campaigner Sue Dengate has praised the initiative by saying it is a significant step towards the improvement of the health of Australian children.

"There hasn’t been any Government push at all; the Government has not been protecting Australian children," she said.

"The manufacturers and retailers are taking the lead here because surveys show that’s what consumers want."
