Scope of inquiry

The European Parliament’s AGRI Committee has agreed to seek to restrict the use of descriptions like "sausage", "burger" and "steak" to apply only to products containing meat, and not to vegetarian alternatives. The EU Energy and Environment Sub-Committee intends to explore the potential impact of this proposal on consumers and the food industry.
