ITALY - &quot;In order to maximise the high quality and safety levels of our poultry products, we should enforce the provisions of law 204/2004, according to which the origin of all foodstuffs must appear on product labels. This way, we wouldn&#39;t need to invent a EU mark which might help pass off products from Eastern European countries as Italian products&quot;. The chairman of Federconsumatori, Rosario Trefiletti, explained that this law (a law that both Federconsumatori and Coldiretti called for) &quot;if properly enforced, would provide information on the origin of all products and protect people from the unhealthy ones&quot;. <i>Source:</i>
