Towards a new segmentation of French meat

Development plans have been written by food and agriculture inter-branch organisations at the request of the French government and as part of the French food forum (« Etats généraux de l’alimentation ») held in 2017. A vast majority of meat sector organizations notified their intention to raise the average quality of their production in order to differ from their competitors. They all committed to develop, sometimes considerably, the proportion of their meat products sold under official quality and origin labels such as Protected Designation of Origin (PDO) Protected Geographical Indication (PGI), Label Rouge or Organic farming (AB).
