EDA Position Paper against mandatory origin labelling for milk

As part of the Farm to Fork Strategy, the European Commission is considering extending mandatory origin labelling to more food products because consumers want to know where their food comes from. EDA is concerned about the negative consequences mandatory origin labelling would entail, as it would hamper the functioning of the single market and contradict the environmental objectives in the EU Green Deal and Farm to Fork Strategy. We therefore urge the EU Commission to protect the single market and withdraw any possible extension of mandatory origin rules to milk and milk as an ingredient in dairy products.
