Defares assists Dutch meat products industry

It is allowed to add additives to meats which are “meat products” within the meaning of Regulation 853/2004. A stricter regime applies to “meat preparations”. The Dutch Meat Association (COV), the Dutch Meat Products Association (VNV) and their members do not agree with the sudden explanation and enforcement by the Dutch Food and Consumer Product Safety Authority with regards to the qualification of their meats as “meat preparations”.

COV and VNV are assisted by Defares in their procedure against the Dutch State.
