Bulgaria to ban improper labelling of food product


Bulgaria will ban food products, containing vegetable fat, from being labelled as dairy products.


In a Thursday interview, Agriculture Minister, Miroslav Naydenov, explained that the ordinance would be introduced as a supplement to an existing one which defines which products can be sold as "cheese", "yellow cheese" and "milk".


Naydenov told journalists that the current regulations were often being sidestepped by producers who put "dairy product" stamps on products containing palm oil.
