The issue of copyrighted food labels is to be discussed at a two-day meeting of ministers of the V4 countries, plus Bulgaria and Romania due to begin in Český Krumlov, Czech Republic, on December 13, it was reported. The Slovak delegation will be led by newly-appointed Agriculture Minister Zdenka Kramplová.

Kramplová will point out that there is a need to support the protection of labeled products throughout the European Union. This results from the fact that these products with their added value and high quality contribute in a significant way to the diversity of European food culture and the preservation of traditions in the regions. Last but not least, they also have a positive influence on the development of the countryside, rural employment, agro-tourism and other industries.

Slovakia proposes that awareness and reputation of these products among consumers should be improved and supported across the EU. [The V4 group includes Slovakia, the Czech Republic, Hungary and Poland.] TASR
