CONSULTATIONS: Agricultural products – revision of EU marketing standards
(Source: European Commission)
EU marketing standards for agricultural products ensure a high level of quality. However, some standards are now outdated or may hinder efforts to make the food system more efficient and sustainable.
This initiative aims to update these standards to:
- encourage the supply of more sustainable products to consumers
- simplify current legislation, which uses several legal instruments
- align EU rules with requirements under the Lisbon Treaty.
