AFSCA 07/04/17 Questions-réponses sur certaines dispositions en matière d’étiquetage des denrées alimentaires au sens du règlement (UE) N° 1169/2011 (PDF) PARLEMENT EUROPEEN - Réponse à question E-001062-17 Consumers' right to informed food choices. Consumer protection policy is part of improving the quality of life of EU citizens.
In this context, consumers' right to make an informed choice on products should be upheld in all areas, including the food supply chain. The results of the study on the functioning of the voluntary labelling scheme for food consumers in the European Union (EAHC/FWC/2012 86 04) showed that more than 70% of consumers buy food products on the basis of data shown on the product packaging. Technological innovation in the area of collection, exchange and use of data to monitor the flow of raw materials and other ingredients makes traceability reliable, thus guaranteeing the quality and safety of food.
Manufacturers and supervisory authorities benefit from traceability, as do consumers, who are able to receive full information on origin and ingredients.

PARLEMENT EUROPEEN - Réponse à question E-006161-15 Indications of origin for meat in processed foods: measures under consideration by the Commission. PARLEMENT EUROPEEN - Raponse à question E-003298-16 Regulating food labelling in the context of negotiations on trade agreements. The requirement to label all food and feed consisting of or containing GMOs entered into force in 2004, having been laid down in order to protect citizens and the environment to a high degree.
The labelling rules for GMOs in food and feed are set out in detail in Articles 1, 2, and 4 of Regulation (EC) No 1830/2003. Unlike the EU, the US has no law on mandatory labelling for food and feed consisting of or containing GMOs, as the relevant federal agency, the FDA, has declared food of this type to be equivalent to conventionally produced food. The US maintains that the EU labelling rules are commercially unprofitable and considers that the indications in question should be compulsory only when a health risk is involved.

COUR DE JUSTICE DE L UNION EUROPEENNE 04/06/15 L’étiquetage d’une denrée alimentaire ne doit pas induire le consommateur en erreur en suggérant la présence d’un ingrédient qui est en réalité absent. GAMM VERT - REGLEMENT UE N°1169/2011 INCO (Information du Consommateur) - NOTE D’INFORMATION. PARLEMENT EUROPEEN - Réponse à question E-010508-15 Food labelling (réglement 1169/2011) Regulation (EC) No 1169/2011 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 25 October 2011 seeks to ensure that labelling on foods is clear and accurate and does not mislead the consumer(1).
Notwithstanding the fact that foods labelled prior to 13 December 2014 may be sold until stocks are exhausted, and, therefore, that foods not compliant with the labelling requirements under the above regulation may continue to be sold legally today, concerns remain over the application of the regulation. Similarly, there are concerns about the mislabelling of organic and traditional food products, as outlined in Parliament’s resolution of 21 January 2014 on food crisis, fraud in the food chain and control thereof(2). These practices mislead consumers and undermine the efforts of compliant producers.
PARLEMENT EUROPEEN - Réponse à question E-011266-15 Designation of origin of meat in processed foods. PARLEMENT EUROPEEN - Réponse à question E-008529-15 Labelling of animal ingredients (concerne Bonduelle) Controversy has erupted in a number of European countries about the French company Bonduelle, which specialises in tinned and frozen vegetables.
Various products from Bonduelle have been found to contain animal ingredients which are not mentioned in the list of ingredients on the packaging. For instance, some vegetables are flavoured with meat extracts from chicken, beef, pork and mutton(1). According to Annex VII to Regulation (EU) No 1169/2011, these ingredients do not have to be mentioned, as they are flavourings which are only present in small amounts.
For consumers who do not eat meat or other animal products for ethical or religious reasons, this legislation is clearly insufficient. It is not possible for these consumers to determine whether a product meets their dietary requirements. PARLEMENT EUROPEEN - Réponse à question E-004581-15 Labelling — processed meat ingredients found in foods. Some of the EU’s greatest achievements are no doubt the single market, the principle of Four Freedoms and the prohibition of discrimination by citizenship.
It is pleasing to observe the EU’s progress down the right path to the highest standards of living and respect for the interests of its citizens by protecting and improving public healthcare, consumer protection and public safety. Given the statement of the European Parliament approved in February concerning the countries of origin of the meat ingredients found in processed foods, the question emerges as to whether the precise indication of the countries of origin indeed serves the interests of the citizens. The financial aspect, namely the effect of the additional cost of labelling on the price, is merely one of many considerations involved in dealing with this issue.
PARLEMENT EUROPEEN - Réponse à question E-003224-15 Food labelling — Parliament resolution and reports. In its answer to Written Questions E-009209/2014, E-006052/2014 and E-007653/2014, the Commission stated that it would be submitting a report to Parliament and the Council in December 2014 regarding the possibility of extending mandatory origin labelling with respect to certain foods, in particular for single-ingredient products and ingredients that represent more than 50% of a food.
Nevertheless, this report has not yet been submitted and in the meantime Parliament has adopted resolution P8_TA(2015)0034 , in which it ‘urges the Commission to follow up its report with legislative proposals making the indication of the origin of meat in processed foods mandatory’. 1. Will the Commission draw up this report and include an obligation for the label to show the country of origin of mussels and fish in processed and preserved fish products?
2. Will it act on the proposal recently approved by Parliament regarding the obligation to indicate the origin of meat in processed foods?

La session d’information s’est surtout concentrée sur l’interprétation de certains articles du règlement (e.a. sur la base du Questions and Answers de la Commission européenne). Les thèmes pour lesquels les modalités d’application n’étaient pas encore connues, comme l’étiquetage de l’origine, étaient brièvement abordés. Cette session d’information était destinée principalement aux entreprises des secteurs de la transformation et de la distribution.
