FoodDrinkEurope, EuroCommerce, and Primary Food Processors have developed Guidance to provide food business stakeholders with a common understanding of the new rules on origin labelling of the primary ingredient. This updated version of the Guidance (May 2020) has been completed with the interpretations of the European Commission as per its recently published Notice.
The production and distribution of food and drink products is essential at all time; during this exceptional COVID-19 pandemic, this does not change, and the protection of the health and safety of workers in the food industry must be a priority.
The present Industry Guidelines on the Regulation (EC) No 1334/2008 on flavourings and certain food ingredients with flavouring properties for use in and on foods are intended to provide a common understanding of the major issues to be taken into account by food business operators, flavourings producers and other stakeholders.
