Labels on fish and seafood from December onwards

Posted by | No category | No Comments

Fishmongers and other points of sale are getting ready this year to offer, from December onwards, some tables with more details about their fish or seafood (such as the art of capturing or if they can cause allergies) on their counters. This will be compulsory.

Insofar as the labels are concerned, the sea sector will have to cope with two important regulations: the reform of the Common Fisheries Policy (CFP) and the reform of the common organisation of the fisheries market (COM), and the European regulation (for all unpacked food), which requires all allergenic ingredients to be declared.

The new requirements will be applied in both cases in December and the aim is for consumers to be better informed about the goods they are purchasing. Apart from the compulsory details about the art of capturing, the vendor may voluntarily provide data, such as the ship that has caught these products, or environmental information about the fish or seafood.
Faced with this enormous amount of information, the EU has established that the voluntary information cannot reduce the space available for the information that must be legally expressed on the labels.
