Labeling: towards more transparency


The horse meat lasagna scandal is still remembered today. Consumers who are better informed about food are what the government wants. The labeling of the origin of milk, in dairy products, and of meat, in prepared meals, has been in place since January 1st. This is an experiment that will last two years. "This device will allow citizens to benefit from better information, milk and meat producers to see the quality of their products fully recognized and processing companies to enhance the composition of processed products", according to the government. Note that distributors will have until March 31 to sell off stocks. _EH
