EU to cut out 'ugly fruit' rules


Recommended Posts

The European Commission is expected to scrap its controversial rules that prevent oddly-sized and shaped fruit and vegetables being sold in Europe.

The commission wants to trim its existing marketing standards for 26 types of produce.

The rules were introduced to ensure common EU standards, but are regarded by critics as examples of Euro-madness.

Some 20% of produce is rejected by shops across the EU because it fails to meet the current requirements.

Since what is an "ugly" fruit is subjective and may depend from day to day on how a person feels, clearly a "feel good" regulation at best. :lol:

No no no.. Just fruit and vegetables that look "weird", is too small or too big etc. They follow very strict standards, like measuring the size of all strawberries etc. Its a really frakked up system. :)

Don't the ugly one's get used in processed foods?

I don't know. Im not so sure. I just think they get thrown away. :(

I think it's terrible news. It means that we'll now be having to eat things that look like ...

Hahha funny one! :lol:
