Europe’s largest farmers’ association, Copa-Cogeca, had supported a ban, arguing that labelling vegetarian substitutes with designations that brought meat to mind was misleading for consumers.


But a group of 13 organisations – including <a href="/fr/topic/greenpeace" class="body-link" data-vars-item-name="BL-4572829-/topic/greenpeace" data-vars-event-id="c23">Greenpeace</a> and <a href="/fr/topic/wwf" class="body-link" data-vars-item-name="BL-4572829-/topic/wwf" data-vars-event-id="c23">WWF</a> – urged the politicians to reject the proposed amendments, arguing that a ban would have not only exposed the <a href="/fr/topic/eu" class="body-link" data-vars-item-name="BL-4572829-/topic/eu" data-vars-event-id="c23">EU</a> “to ridicule”, but also damaged its environmental credibility.



































They said promoting a shift towards a more plant-based diet is in line with the EU Commission’s ambition <a href="/fr/news/world/hottest-year-on-record-2019-global-warming-report-a4420721.html" class="body-link" data-vars-item-name="BL-4572829-/news/world/hottest-year-on-record-2019-global-warming-report-a4420721.html" data-vars-event-id="c23" rel="nofollow">to tackle global warming</a><a> </a>.

The European Consumer Organisation, an umbrella group bringing together consumers’ associations, praised the MEPs for their “common sense”.

“Consumers are in no way confused by a soy steak or chickpea-based sausage, so long as it is clearly labelled as vegetarian or vegan,” the group said in a statement.































“Terms such as ‘burger’ or ‘steak’ on plant-based items simply make it much easier for consumers to know how to integrate these products within a meal.”







Together with Greenpeace, the group regretted that politicians accepted further restrictions on the naming of alternative products containing no dairy.







Terms like “almond milk” and “soy yoghurt” are already banned in <a class="wpil_keyword_link " href="https://europeantimes.news/category/europe/"  title="Europe" data-wpil-keyword-link="linked">Europe</a> after the bloc’s top court ruled in 2017 that purely plant-based products cannot be marketed using terms such as milk, butter or cheese, which are reserved for animal products.
