Dopo il bando del nome latte per le bevande vegetali, il prossimo obiettivo del Parlamento europeo sembra bloccare il Burger vegetariano. Non c’è bisogno di commentare.
In a move that some MEPs suspect bears the fingerprints of the meat industry, the parliament’s agriculture committee this week approved a ban on producers of vegetarian food using nomenclature usually deployed to describe meat.
The protected designations would include steak, sausage, escalope, burger and hamburger, under a revised regulation that passed with 80% approval. The measures will now be voted on by the full parliament after May’s European elections, before being put to member states and the European commission.
