Milk, sugars and fruit juice

Milk, sugars and fruit juice

At the Council meeting on the 7 December, the Council reached a political agreement on three vertical directives on foodstuffs relating to:

  1. 1.

    certain partly or wholly dehydrated preserved milk for human consumption;

  2. 2.

    certain sugars intended for human consumption;

  3. 3.

    fruit juices and certain similar products intended for human consumption.

These directives are part of a simplification exercise and will replace the current rules on preserved milk, certain sugars, and fruit juices, i.e. Directives 76/118/EEC, 73/437/EEC and 93/77/EEC. They will be adopted at a later stage after legal/linguistic finalisation, and will be transmitted to the European Parliament for re-consultation on the Committee procedure applicable.
