Apr 08, 2024

The so-called “breakfast directives”, provisionally agreed between Parliament and Council”, and on which MEPs will hold a final vote on Wednesday, will update rules on the composition, name, labelling and presentation of certain 'breakfast' foodstuffs.

In particular, the new rules will combat adulterated honey imports from non-EU countries through obligatory and clearly visible country of origin labelling, and will launch a process for a honey traceability system. There will also be clearer labelling on sugar content in fruit juices as well as for minimum fruit content in jams and marmalades.
