Hungarian initiative results in revised EU directive on honey labelling

European Union rules on honey labelling will change to indicate the countries of origin of blends and their shares as a result of a Hungarian initiative, Minister of Agriculture Istvan Nagy said on Thursday.

Nagy noted that Hungary had proposed the change in November 2019.

The European Parliament and the Council reached political agreement on the revised directive on mandatory origin labelling for honey on Wednesday.
