National Country of Origin Labelling evaluation - FO0433

The results given in this report will be a benchmark to assess the current level of uptake of the industry’s voluntary principles on the provision of origin information and will help to inform the UK position in the negotiations on the new EU Food Information Regulation.

The survey captured origin labelling data given on meat products such as bacon, sausages, pies and ready meals and specific dairy products - liquid milk, fresh cream, cheese and butter as required by the principles.
