And once again, it did not take long for the first warning letters to be issued due to justified or alleged deficiencies in the implementation of the provisions of the new Food Information Regulation (LMIV).
As a reminder, the Food Information Regulation regulates the uniform labelling of food in the European Union (EU) and has been binding in all EU member states since 13 December 2014. In Germany, it has replaced the old Food Labelling Ordinance (LMKV).
I have now received the warning letter of a Wein-Plus member from the Verbraucherschutzverein gegen unlauteren Wettbewerb e.V., Maisacherstraße 6, 82256 Fürstenfeldbruck.
In the past, the VSV has also distinguished itself through warning letters the "classic" violations: faulty general terms and conditions and revocation instructions, as well as insufficient fulfilment of further information obligations were often the reasons.
