The EU's Environment Committee today approved a new set of regulations governing the labelling of food. The new rules include compulsory labelling of meat from animals that were not stunned before slaughter. Obviously, this would generally include halal, although some so-called halal slaughter does involve stunning. This is only a stage in the progress of the draft legislation, which has not yet entered into force.

Meat labels should indicate where the animal was born, reared and slaughtered, say MEPs. In addition, meat from slaughter without stunning (in accordance with certain religious traditions), should be labelled as such and meat consisting of combined meat parts must be labelled "formed meat".


Once the legislation is adopted, food businesses will have three years to adapt to the rules. They will have two more years, so five years in total, to apply the rules on the nutritional declaration.
