FRUIT/VEGETABLES – Council Discussions: Adoption of Decision regarding the UNECE discussions on standards for fruits and vegetables

The following is an extract from the Minutes of the Agriculture and Fisheries Council meeting held on the 6 November 2017:

The Council adopted a decision on the position to be taken on behalf of the European Union within the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) with regard to quality standards for fruit and vegetables (See: 13234/17).

The UNECE working party on agricultural quality standards (UNECE-WP.7) examines and adopts proposals establishing new UNECE quality standards for fruit and vegetables or amending the existing standards, thereby contributing to the international harmonisation of such standards and setting a framework which ensures fair competition in the trading of fruit and vegetables. The Union participates in UNECE-WP.7 as an observer.
