Food Industry Scared By Consumers Making Informed Decision ? What Has TTIP (Trans-Atlantic Trade and Investment Partnership) In Store For Us ?

Publié le 19 Mai 2015

Cutting a long story short :

2009 : A US law makes meat labeling mandatory

2014 : Canadian and Mexican producers sue US government via WTO

2015 : WTO rules that labels on packaged meat indicating where cows, chicken or other animals were born, raised and slaughtered are in violation of international trade pacts.

Ain't democracy wonderful ?

Food Industry Scared By Consumers Making Informed Decision ?  What Has TTIP (Trans-Atlantic Trade and Investment Partnership) In Store For Us ?
