France: French Farm and Food Bill Aims at Limiting Non-EU Imports

France’s recently passed farm and food bill contains a provision that prohibits the imports of agricultural and food products produced with pesticides, herbicides, veterinary medicines and feed inputs that are not approved for use in production within the European Union. Environmental NGOs and farm groups support this provision. It is not compatible with WTO rules and many officials believe it is unenforceable in Europe’s Common Market.
