FDE guidance on origin labelling of primary ingredients updated

FoodDrinkEurope, Primary Food Processors and EuroCommerce have updated their guidance to clarify how the origin of primary ingredients shall be labelled when it is different than the given origin of the food. This updated version of the Guidance (May 2020) has been completed with the interpretations in the recently published Notice of the European Commission.

Because of a number of uncertainties in the legislation the three organizations produced in March 2019 a draft guidance on origin labeling. This version is now updated and also includes the Q&As from the Commission Notice on voluntary country of origin labelling.
