EC to ban prawn cocktail crips

Saturday, January 16th, 1993

Myth: Brussels is about to do away with our prawn cocktail crisps.

Response: There has never been any intention of the sort. In the process of drafting a directive to reconcile different national rules on the amounts of sweeteners and flavourings in different foods, the respective national Governments were asked to provide the Commission with information about these areas. Unfortunately UK negotiators overlooked the effect on the production of specially flavoured crisps. When the trade pointed this out the list was later amended.
