New Rules for Insect-Based Foods in Hungary
Hungary’s Agriculture Ministry has changed rules to require food containing insect protein to be clearly labelled and sold only on designated shelf space, Agriculture Minister István Nagy said.

Consumers must be able to “distinguish and differentiate” products with insect protein under the new rules.

Nagy noted that the European Commission has already approved four insects as commercial food sources, a decision Hungary alone opposed, as the European Union is faced with neither a food nor a protein shortage.
