Minister of Agriculture (AM) Decree amending Ministry of Agriculture (FM) Decree No 36/2014 of 17 December 2014 on food information
The amendment of Ministry of Agriculture (FM) Decree No 36/2014 of 17 December 2014 on food information provides that the name of any foodstuff which contains insect protein must be accompanied by an indication in a font size that is at least the same as the font size used for the name of the product, reading ‘Attention! Food contains insect protein’. Furthermore, in order to ensure a clear distinction, marketed foodstuffs containing insect protein should be placed separately on the shelves for customers.
The amendment also lays down provisions for the use of non-prepacked and catering products containing insect protein, as well as for the use of non-compliant packaging and labels and for the keeping on the market of products bearing such packaging or labels.
