Abstract
The Decree, in accordance with Commission Directives Nos. 445/2007, 2991/94 and 1898/87 laying down standards for spreadable fats and on the protection of designations used in the marketing of milk and milk products, brings forth amendments to articles 78 and 81 of the Food Code regarding the indication of milk fat content in milk products (butter). The scope of such amendments is to define more clearly composite products of which an essential part is butter, by laying down an objective criterion for determining whether an essential part of the composite products is actually butter and whether the designation butter is therefore justified.
