Quality matters

Today the Commission has published a new common methodology that will allow national authorities to compare the quality of food products across the EU, when they compare the composition and characteristics of these food products (Dual quality of food...). The idea behind this project being that currently similarly branded or packaged food products may differ in composition to an extent that is misleading to consumers, but the comparison between these products as well as the finding of misleading action would differ per Member State, leading to different levels of consumer protection. This common methodology emerged from the activities of the Joint Research Centre (JRC), the European Commission's Science and Knowledge service, which facilitate evaluation of differences in the quality of food products in an objective way.
