Comment on Suspension of French Decree Banning “Meaty” Plant-based Food Names

ProVeg International has welcomed the suspension by France’s highest court of a Decree banning “meaty” names for plant-based products, which was scheduled to take effect in October 2022.

The Conseil d’Etat expressed doubts over the legality of the Decree after ruling that providing consumers with information was insufficient justification for its introduction.

Jasmijn de Boo, Vice President of ProVeg International which works with decision-making bodies, governments, food producers, investors, the media, and the general public to help the world transition to a society and economy that are less dependent on animal agriculture, comments:

“We are delighted to hear that the French Conseil d’Etat has decided to suspend the decree prohibiting names for plant-based products.

“Plant-based foods are part of the solution to tackling the climate crisis and any regulation should actively support their sale and marketing not hamper it.”

ProVeg has permanent-observer status with the The United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), accreditation for UNEA, and is a recipient of the UN Momentum for Change Award.
