Corporate Europe Observatory (CEO) has collected more than twenty e-mails from industry lobbyists with “voting recommendations” for MEPs ahead of the ENVI committee vote, in March 2010, on the ‘Sommer report’ about the new EU regulation on food labelling.
These are just a very small, non-representative fraction of the lobby messages that have bombarded MEPs during the €1-billion campaign by the food and drink industry to block ‘traffic-light’ labelling.
According to Kartika Liotard MEP, industry sent more than 100 e-mails for every one sent by civil society.
CEO is publishing these documents because we think they should be in the public domain, to allow EU citizens and journalists to understand who is influencing EU legislation on this issue.
