Food, Dairy, Retail, Wine and Spirits
The EBA welcomes the registration by the VRU of the Draft Law «On Information about Food Products for Consumers» No. 8450 dated June 7, 2018, which included the majority of the Food, Dairy, Retail and Wine & Spirits Committees’ proposals and comments.
Adoption of the relevant Law will allow:
- to create a productive mechanism for informing consumers about food products or ingredients, their composition, nutritional value, method of consumption, etc .;
- to reduce the burden on market operators by systematizing the provisions of the legislation on food information requirements in a single law harmonized with the European Union legislation.
We are grateful to the State Service of Ukraine for Food Safety and Consumer Protection, the IFSSU Project and EU Delegation for taking into account our proposals, as well as to all Association’s experts who have joined the elaborating of the Draft Law.
