A bill for the establishment of a Cypriot label on agricultural products is in the final stages of legislative processing at the Legal Service, announced Agriculture Minister Petros Xenophontos on Sunday.
Addressing the Local and Traditional Products Festival in Farmaka, the minister explained that the proposed legislation will provide an additional boost to rural Cyprus.
A Cypriot label will reflect the origin of the products and will distinguish them in the market, linking them more strongly to their local roots and the domestic raw materials used in their production.
He noted that the agricultural sector in Cyprus currently faces numerous challenges but highlighted that the government consistently stands by the side of farmers, livestock breeders, and agricultural product processors.
Xenophontos noted how the ministry has been tirelessly working towards rural population revitalisation, ensuring fair income for producers, food quality assurance, and support for the rejuvenation of the agricultural sector.
