Are there any changes to the requirements on the Statement of Agricultural Origin?

GB must use the following:

  • UK Agriculture
  • Non UK Agriculture
  • UK/ Non UK Agriculture

NI must use the following where the EU logo is used:

  • EU Agriculture
  • Non EU Agriculture
  • EU/ Non EU Agriculture

 You can use more specific references if 98% of ingredients are grown in a specific area for example Milk from NI could be Northern Irish Agriculture, or Welsh lamb could be Welsh Agriculture.

 For exports to third countries, you need to meet their labelling requirements.

If you use the EU organic logo for GB exports to the EU, you’ll need to include both the GB statement of agriculture ( ‘UK or non-UK Agriculture’) and the EU statement of agriculture (‘EU or non-EU Agriculture’)
