Provision of Mandatory Food Information to Consumers in Respect of Certain Non-Prepacked Meats – Regulations 2017 (16 pages, in English)

Ireland intends to adopt national measures to cover mandatory origin labelling of fresh, chilled and frozen non pre-packed cuts of meat of swine, sheep, goats and poultry. The legislation will require Food Business Operators (FBOs) to clearly show the "country of rearing" and "country of slaughter" of any of the above products at either the point of presentation, point of sale or the point of supply. FBOs may, where they can prove to the competent authority that the meat referred to has been obtained from animals born, reared and slaughtered in one single Member State or third country, present the "origin" of the meat as (name of single Member State or third country).

The national measures require that where a FBO provides another FBO with meat, information relating to the meat is transmitted to the FBO receiving the meat in the manner prescribed in the national measures, in order to enable, when required, the provision of mandatory food information to the final consumer.
