EU Proposes Labeling Requirements for Organic Pet Food

It will be obligatory for prepackaged pet food that is labeled as organic to bear EU’s organic production logo. In organic pet food, at least 95% weight of the agricultural ingredients shall be organic.

After the implementation of Regulation (EU) 2018/848 on Organic Production and Labeling of Organic Products1 on January 1, 2022, in the case where not all agricultural ingredients in pet food (particularly those for dogs and cats) are organic, the product can no longer bear the term organic production and EU’s organic production logo. However, prior to the implementation of Regulation (EU) 2018/848, pet food could be labeled as organic in the same situation, since Member States had established national rules or recognized private standards. In addition, Regulation (EU) 2018/848 covers the labeling of feed for farm animals (like hay) but no specific labeling requirements for pet food.
