The goal is to avoid the double standard. The draft provisions provide for the exact meat content of sausages to be described.

Wieners, for example, must have at least 50% meat. Similar will be the requirements for kielabasi and other types of sausages. In minced meat, the meat content should be at least 70-80%.

Dairy products will need to be prepared from at least 5 liters of milk. It has not yet been decided whether there will be requirements for non-alcoholic beverages, chocolates and other types of food.

The new rules are expected to enter into force next year.
