P-001990/2022(ASW)

    Answer given by Mr Wojciechowski on behalf of the European Commission

    The Commission is aware of the development of technologies such as precision fermentation to produce animal-derived products.

    The Commission does not object to the development of new technologies to produce food, as long as they comply with EU rules. This concerns notably food safety and marketing rules.

    The products quoted by the Honourable Member could not be marketed in the EU as milk or milk products since, according to Regulation 1308/2013[1], ‘milk’ means exclusively the normal mammary secretion obtained from one or more milkings without either addition thereto or extraction therefrom.

    There are no records[2] of the company quoted by the Honourable Member having received agricultural support in 2021 or 2022.
