On April 11, 2018, the European Commission published a proposal to amend the Unfair Commercial Practices Directive to answer Member States’ demand for tools to tackle dual quality of foodstuff in the EU. The Commission defines dual quality foodstuff as “goods marketed in the Single Market under the same brand or trademark but with differences in content, composition or quality in individual EU Member States.” Stakeholders can provide feedback on the draft Directive before June 11, 2018.
