LABELLING - Gluten in food: Council discussions

The following is an extract from the minutes of the Economic and Financial Affairs Council meeting held in Brussels, 15 November 2013

The Council decided not to object to a Commission regulation on the provision of food information to consumers as regards voluntary information on the absence or reduced presence of gluten in food (13245/13).

The regulation is a delegated act pursuant to article 290 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the EU. This means that now that the Council has given its consent, the act can enter into force, unless the European Parliament objects to it.
