EU Vegan Labeling

The European Parliament recognizes veganism and approves enforcing stricter food labeling for meat products.

On Wednesday, the European Parliament passed a motion requiring origin food labeling, which includes a provision recognizing that vegetarians and vegans are persons who choose not to eat animal products, and that meat and its derivatives should never be mistakenly labeled as vegetarian. The European Parliament legislation says that the term vegetarian “should not be applied to foods that are, or are made from or with the aid of products derived from animals that have died, have been slaughtered,” and that the term vegan “should not be applied to foods that are, or are made from or with the aid of, animals or animal products.”
