Germany: New Mandatory Animal Husbandry Labeling Law

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   GM2023-0013

In August 2023, after more than a decade of political discussions on the restructuring of livestock farming, a new German law on mandatory animal husbandry labeling went into effect. It requires hog farmers to report their husbandry practices and food businesses to label goods accordingly. The label is part of the overall aim of the German Federal Ministry of Food and Agriculture (BMEL) to transform the livestock sector. Imported products are not affected by the new law.
