  • Guidance on the Origin Indication of the Primary Ingredient in Edible Ices

    18.04.2019

    Article 26(3) of Regulation (EU) No 1169/2011 on the provision of food information to consumers requires that where the country of origin or the place of provenance of a food is given and where it is not the same as that of its primary ingredient, the country of origin or place of provenance of the primary ingredient in question also be given or, at least, indicated as being different to that of the food. The Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2018/775 clarifies and harmonizes how the origin of the primary ingredient must be labelled.

    To provide ice cream operators with a sector-wide understanding on the origin indication of the primary ingredient in Edible Ices, Euroglaces developed a Guidance. This Guidance should be read together with the relevant provisions of above-mentioned Regulations and be used complimentary to the joint FoodDrinkEurope, EuroCommerce and Primary Food Processors Guidance on the origin indication of the primary ingredient and the (draft) Commission notice on the application of the provisions of Article 26(3).
