Keywords: Vegetarian, Vegan, Products, Labelling, Definitions

As dietary habits throughout Europe are changing, more and more consumers turn towards plant-based lifestyles. The range of vegetarian products is increasing accordingly. However, crucial food labelling questions remain to be solved. This includes the definition of the terms “vegan” and “vegetarian” for food labelling purposes and questions concerning the use of certain sales denominations for meat and dairy alternatives. This article explores both issues from the perspective of the European Vegetarian Union (EVU) and gives insights into the legal and political situation.
