Proof of Origin - Labels on Dairy Products in the EU

This is a code obligatory within the EU on every dairy product that enables the consumer to track down the origin of the milk. Since a milk scandal a few months ago, this has an impact on consumers buying local products.

Within the EU, it became obligatory to label dairy products with a standardised code that help consumers to track the origin of the milk.

Since there was a milk scandal that was very passionately discussed in the public about farmers being not able to live on the milk they produce, people became very aware of buying and thereby supporting their local farmers. They really read the code before deciding which product they are going to buy.

The code indicates the country, the region and the farmer´s own code which can be all looked up online.
