Processed agricultural products (PAPs) are non-agricultural food and drink items made out of agricultural products.
In EU law, agricultural products are listed in Annex I to the Treaty on the Functioning of the EU. By contrast, PAPs are often called ‘Non-Annex I goods’.
Non-Annex I goods are listed in Regulation (EU) no 510/2014. They include products such as chocolate, confectionary, sweet drinks, beers, spirits, biscuits and bakery products. More than 70% of agricultural commodities produced in the EU are transformed into manufactured food products, many of which are Non-Annex I goods.
