Government representatives were meeting with food industry and food labelling organizations on Wednesday morning to discuss the matter.
"We want to see clear labelling for the benefit of the consumer, although we would prefer not to have to legislate," said the minister's press secretary, Tomas Uddin.
"The production of foodstuffs accounts for 20 percent of climate emissions," he added.
The government was to discuss a time frame for the proposed move at Wednesday's meeting.
