France prohibits by decree the use of certain meat denominations in products of vegetable origin

France prohibits by decree the use of terms such as ‘fillet’, ‘solo fillet’, ‘entrecot’, ‘ham’, ‘grilled’ or ‘steak’, among others, in the labeling of foods containing vegetable proteins.




So that vegetable product operators can adapt their labeling to the new law, the regulations will enter into force within three months.

The text foresees penalties in case of infringement which may be up to 1,500 euros, for individuals, and up to 7,500 euros for companies, which will also have a period of one year to get rid of the existing stock.
