We have previously mentioned a European Citizens' Initiative urging the European Commission to take steps to label the origin of food products ("Eat ORIGINal! Unmask your food" initiative). Today the European Commission decided to register another initiative "Mandatory food labelling Non-Vegetarian/Vegetarian/Vegan' (see news item).
The idea is for the EU to design and enforce pictorial labels allowing for easy identification of such products across all Member States. As of next week the Commission will start collecting signatures in support of this initiative.
