The European Commission has launched a public consultation, until next March 2, to be answered by citizens and interested parties, with several questions regarding information on the origin of meat in the meat labeling that It is marketed in the EU.
According to the Commission, “the general rules concerning the labeling of food products with respect to the content and composition of food products ensure that clear information is available to help consumers make informed decisions. Food labeling should also indicate the country of origin or place of origin. This is the case, for example, with fresh, chilled and frozen meat from pigs, sheep, goats and poultry. “
This questionnaire seeks to determine the efficiency, effectiveness, coherence and relevance of this legislation, as well as its usefulness to complement national efforts.
