In the Journal for Consumer Protection and Food Safety, the Federal Office of Consumer Protection and Food Safety (BVL) has published the resolutions of the 87th meeting of the ALTS (Working Group of Experts Working in the Field of Food Hygiene and Food of Animal Origin). The resolutions of the ALTS are not legally binding, but represent an important interpretation aid for food law regulations and questions.

The resolutions cover various topics. For example, resolutions on the labelling of foodstuffs such as the form of presentation of the nutrition declaration (2021/87/04) or the indication of quantities of meat components in ready meals (2021/87/05) were drafted.

In addition, numerous decisions on the subject of meat and meat products, such as the legal classification of protein additives (2021/87/15), were published.
