On 26 April 2016, the Committee for Agriculture, Fishery, Forestry, Food Industry and Specific Services of the Romanian Parliament proposed an amendment to the law 321/2009 on food products.
According to the amendment, supermarkets in Romania with a turnover of at least 2 million EUR will have to source 51% of certain fresh foods locally. This localisation requirement shall hold for meat, eggs, vegetables and fruits, honey, dairy and bakery products.
Since the proposal, the amendment has been passed by the parliament and awaits the president's signature. Meanwhile, the media reports (cf. Sources) questioned whether the protectionist amendments would be allowed by the European Commission.
