    ASSICA very much supports the document and we do appreciate the outstanding progress made by the Commission and Member States in developing the draft text and we hope that final agreement on the Implementing Regulation can be found as soon as possible. This is because an harmonized approach is urgently needed to make a step forward towards the implementation of the origin labelling requirements laid down in the Regulation (EU) 1169/2011 and to...

    We suggest that geographical areas references “EU”, “non-EU” or "EU and non-EU" are aligned with EU Organic Regulation No 834/2007 requirements: ‘EU Agriculture’, where the agricultural raw material has been farmed in the EU, — ‘non-EU Agriculture’, where the agricultural raw material has been farmed in third countries, — ‘EU/non-EU Agriculture’, where part of the agricultural raw materials has been farmed in the Community and a part of it has...

    The origin of a product is not the ultimate indicator of its quality, rather this tool encounters the know-how and expertise of the manufacturing process. This regulation could lead to a fragmentation of the Single Market and particularly of the food sector (mainly represented by SMEs on a European level) by promoting a re-nationalisation of supplying practices which undermines a harmonised approach. The Commission should focus more on...

    Information of origine is of highest priority for Swedish consumers. Enquiries done in Sweden confirm that 85 % av responders what to know about origine of all kind of foodstuff. Highest priorities are given for animal products meat, diariy products and eggs. The reason is to promote local production, to support national farmers. There are differences in legislation concerning animal welfare and food safety. Animal welfare has a very high rank...

    Innanzitutto, GRAZIE per aver pubblicato la bozza del nuovo regolamento SOLO in lingua inglese ed aver così impedito ai cittadini europei che non lo parlano di partecipare. Bell'esempio di democrazia! Riguardo l'Art. 26 ritengo che tutti i prodotti alimentari dovrebbero recare obbligatoriamente sull'etichetta sia l'origine delle principali materie prime che la sede principale di lavorazione, a prescindere dall'esistenza o meno di...
