European Union - "Place of farming" declaration backed

MEPs supported a mandatory "place of farming" indication if possible and if it does not included excess costs. This would apply to products where 50% of ingredients are farmed or where marketing indicates what it is, for example orange juice it would say where the oranges were from but not the water or other ingredients that go into it.

MEPs on the Agriculture Committee supported a mandatory "place of farming" indication if possible and if it does not included excess costs. This would apply to products where 50% of ingredients are farmed or where marketing indicates what it is, for example orange juice it would say where the oranges were from but not the water or other ingredients that go into it.

The Committee also want the "Traditional Specialties guaranteed" indication to be retained despite the European Commission saying that it does not work.

MEPs are supportive of the new organic logo which was recently chosen by the public after a public competition. However, they want a greater and clearer definition of what actually constitutes "organic".

Members also delivered a strong defence of some existing rules and firmly rejected the merging of the "Protected Designation of Origin" and "Protected Geographical Indication" labelling tools.
