Fruit Juice Directive Approval

The Environment Council has approved on 8 March 2012 the text of the revised Fruit Juice Directive. Only Germany voted against.

The next steps in the procedure are the (joint) signing of the new Directive by the President of the European Parliament and the President of the Council followed by the publication of the revised Directive in the Official Journal. This is likely to happen early May 2012.
