Anyone who sells, barters, or even gives away food will soon have to get their head around the new law.

The removal of banking regulation was the most harmful act against NZ households. If politicians had our interests in mind they would reinstate banking controls. Fluffing around with our food and removing basic freedoms in this area is simply malicious.

It appears that once again the Ministers and thei cohorts have not enough work and have decided to tinker with what appears to be a perfectaly OK law and of course they need to think of new ways to screw the tax payer. How about they look at their own spending and do some cost cutting there. There is so much wastage in the departments what with paying consultants high fees for programmes that are often after paying the consultants for long periods do not get implimented.

Seriously everyone, if you expect to get any real information from the TV, then think again. Just do a search here to see where their funding comes from: http://www.nzonair.govt.nz/funding/fundingsearchpages/fundingsearchtvprograms.aspx?
NZonAir is a crown entity with six Board members appointed by the Minister of Broadcasting (Craig Foss – National MP), and National are the ones trying to push this Food Bill through right now.
There are real issues with this food bill. www.foodbill.org.nz has a good list. And there is a big list of things you can do about it here http://www.foodbill.org.nz/wiki/What_Can_I_Do

So what happens with the food banks and salvation army. People buy goods then donate it to church's or sally's and then they share it out to other helpers, that give it to people who need it??? what happens there? Because some times they get donated thing that they then have to repack to share out so that everyone can get a fear share? What happens there do they now fall under the new law??? It's like they this law restricts you from not only selling goods, small goods. but also from sharing and helping your fellow kiwi's??? I'm not getting that. Shall we be as selfish as key's and snuff our noses up to the poverty within nz but still promote other country's poverty and support them instead of our own. Dum falla, wish you weren't PM

Agri-business , like Monsanto, obviously wrote this Bill, and our treacherous Govt. will push it through. There is absolutely no difference between National (Socialist ie Nazi ) Party and the so-called workers Labour Party. Recall who it was who made stealing our assets politically possible, and treacherous rat in Roger Douglas, with the help of other disgusting so-called Labourites. John Key is of the same ilk, bought and sold to overseas corporates. And the Food Bill is only the start of the misery they have in store for ordinary Kiwis. I used to think Hone Harawira was a raving nutter, but the more I read of his utterences, the more genuine NZer he sounds, proposing ways of improving the lives of ordinary NZers with legislation which Michael Joseph Savage used back in the 30s to bring us out of the depression of those times. Such as creating NZ credit, NOT debt, a financial tax, which would of course catch the greedy bastards who at this moment pay very little tax, but demand the most from tax-payer funded institutions like Police, Armed Forces etc. They, the obsenely wealthy, (there are a few notable exceptions) are parasitic, sucking the life blood of communities for their own personal benefit. How many banksters, crooked accountants and lawyers end up in jail? Very few, only the greedy and stupid. The rest are protected by other grossly overpaid charlatans, some are even judges,and the others are politicians we have mistakenly elected. They were elected to represent US, not the USA, and it's filth-ridden corporate criminal class. because NZers in the main are shockingly illiterate about our political system, and the daylight theft that is the true business called banking, and are seemingly loth to educate themselves about the true nature of the criminals we are subject to, nothing is going to change, and we all go down the gurgler asking WHY? But this forum does give one some hope, as there are obviously people out there who have done some research and have a very good idea where things are heading and who the drivers are. 2012 is going to be a horrible experience for most of us, but let us resolve not to go meekly, but to fight like mad and let the traitors in Parliament know they have a real fight on their hands. This is cause of all revolutions, Govt of corporations,by corporations for corporations. Even the Russian one of 1917 but then was hijacked by the very type of person they were originally fighting, ergo the French and the American revolutions. We desperately need a "Written Constitution" but one written by us, not by the bureaucrats or politicians. One that is enforced by OUR police and enforcement agencies. This will onl;y occur if sufficient people with a true and genuine love for all makindn are in the driving seat. Any other type, and we will only swap tweedle-dee for tweedle-dumb. I suppose I can but dream.
