Published by AGRINFO on ; Revised

Summary

The EU has updated the marketing standards for honey, fruit juices and nectars, fruit jams, jellies and marmalades, and preserved milk, aligning them with the EU’s Farm to Fork strategic goal of encouraging healthier diets among EU citizens. The new rules introduce stricter rules of origin labelling for honey; add a new category of reduced-sugar fruit juices; raise the minimum quantity of fruit to be contained in jams; and permit the treatment of milk to reduce lactose content.
