Summary

It is not obligatory to mention the sentence "x% of the ingredients?." on the label of Dutch products with >70% organic ingredients.

Difference

SKAL has different labelling requirements to the EU Regulation 2092/91. SKAL does not require the use of this sentence in processed foods containing greater than '70% organic ingredients, but this is required by EU Regulation. See EU Rule Text: Article 5, M10 5bis c): on products with 70% or more organic ingredients, the sentence x% of the agricultural ingredients were produced in accordance with the rules of organic production must be on the label.

Justification

This requirment is not seen as relevant for consumers.
