Parliament in France rules against use of meat, dairy terms for substitute products



The French Parliament has voted in favour of a bill that seeks to prevent the use of meat or dairy terms to describe substitute products. The bill, which will now pass into law, means words such as ’steak’, ’sausage’, ’fillet’, ’bacon’, or ’cheese’ cannot be used by producers of soya, vegan, or vegetarian products to describe or market their items.

The law applies to products that are not partly or fully composed of meat, or products that are not partly or fully composed of dairy products. Violations of the law will result in fines of up to 300,000 euros. The bill was proposed by MP Jean-Baptiste Moreau, who was inspired by the 2017 ECJ ruling that dairy-related terms could only be used by products that contained animal milk. Moreau said the new law will help "better inform" consumers. (kamcity.com)
