Question for written answer E-001570-19
to the Commission
Rule 130
Nadine Morano (PPE)

 Subject:  Traceability of organic products
 Answer in writing 

The European Court of Auditors has just issued a report on the control of organic farming. It points out that the sale of organic products grew by 69% in 7 years, reaching a volume of EUR 34.3 billion in 2017.

In 2018, the EU imported organic products from more than 100 different countries. The Court highlighted the difficulties encountered in monitoring and ensuring the traceability of organic products which, because they command higher prices than traditional products, were also prone to fraudulent practices.

In light of this, I would like to ask the following:

How does the Commission intend to enhance the traceability of organic products, particularly those from third countries, and to combat fraud more effectively?
