This Decree of the Ministry of Agriculture, which is composed of 11 articles and one Annex, lays down, in accordance with European Union legislation, certain methods of labelling foodstuffs.

In particular it shouldn't contain misleading information that the food or its ingredient is suitable for children, domestic, fresh, live, pure, natural or that food has been produced according to religious or ritual practices.
