We will keep our existing UK legislation, and the EU Withdrawal Bill will convert EU law into UK law as it applies once we have left the EU.</p><p> </p><p>This means that origin labelling for foods will be required where the consumer would be misled if it were not given. In addition, the rules for compulsory origin labelling of beef, veal, lamb, mutton, pork, goat and poultry meat, fish and shellfish, honey, olive oil, wine and most fruit and vegetables will be in place. The majority of meat and dairy products sold at retail have transparent origin labelling provided voluntarily for the meat or dairy ingredients, and we continue to support the voluntary principles on country of origin labelling.</p><p> </p><p>Method of production labelling is not required for food although some producers provide it on a voluntary basis. If it is provided it must be accurate and must not mislead the consumer: the Government has no plans to change this once we leave the EU.</p><p> </p><p>When we leave the EU, there will be an opportunity to review labelling requirements for all foods, to ensure that we maintain the highest standards of quality and transparency for consumers and take the greatest opportunities for marketing our great British food across the world.</p>
