DailyDirt: Printing Messages On Food

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

Food labeling can be a controversial topic when it comes to getting everyone to agree what information should be included with various foods. That said, technology that just enables printing information on food can lead to some fun (not just informative) innovations. Here are a few cool ways to get a message across via food. If you'd like to read more awesome and interesting stuff, check out this unrelated (but not entirely random!) Techdirt post.

Thank you for reading this Techdirt post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.

Techdirt is one of the few remaining truly independent media outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis.

While other websites have resorted to paywalls, registration requirements, and increasingly annoying/intrusive advertising, we have always kept Techdirt open and available to anyone. But in order to continue doing so, we need your support. We offer a variety of ways for our readers to support us, from direct donations to special subscriptions and cool merchandise — and every little bit helps. Thank you.

–The Techdirt Team

    I think one should be told what it is they are paying for and possibly ingesting. Anything less is simply deception.

        Re: Re:

        That was a rather funny episode in trolling the public, maybe a few people learned from the experience but it is doubtful anyone was harmed by it. However, intentional deception of a paying customer is a different story. Food suppliers know that some potential customers are concerned, right or wrong, about certain ingredients and yet they refuse to disclose whether their products contain said ingredients. They do this in an attempt to protect their profits and some have even coerced the court system into blocking their competitors from claiming a lack of said ingredients. This goes well beyond humor and is subject to litigation, possibly criminal prosecution.
