Food Trade, and Organic Farming content plans published

Plans for simplified guidance on specific food product labelling – products containing meat, organic food, and organic farming are now available.

These plans outline proposed content for the new guidance.  There are also lists of existing guidance with recommendations for what should happen to this guidance when Defra’s agencies’ web content is moved to GOV.UK.

These plans will be available for comment until 2 January 2015.

Other plans are still open for comment: development, animal by-products, animal: imports and exports, and oil storage . These plans will be available for comment until 12 December 2014.

We are particularly keen to hear your views on:

- whether we have covered all the information that is needed from government
– working with others to provide good practice advice
– our plans on what is happening to existing guidance

Further plans will be uploaded in the forthcoming weeks.
