Ombudsman: Fight against double standards in products has become a national cause

21 January 2019 | 11:04 | FOCUS News Agency
Sofia. Double standards in products have long existed, have been unequivocally proven and the cause to overcome them, as a practice that is insulting and humiliating to Bulgaria, has become a national cause. This is what Ombudsman Maya Manolova said in BTV’s morning show before going to Brussels, where she will again raise the issue of double standards in food in Bulgaria and Europe. She said the supply of goods of inferior quality was unjustified and assumed Bulgarians as second-class consumers.
The biggest differences are observed in products for children and babies. There are vegetable fats, less milk and cocoa. There is also a higher price.
“We have had this battle for a third year now. The positive news is that the consumer package, announced from Sofia for the elimination of double standards in food, will be discussed tomorrow in the European Parliament. The package is extremely important and will enable collective claims for compensations. Huge sanctions will be introduced, up to 4% of turnover. There is no other way than economic sanctions against those who abuse consumer trust,” the ombudsman said.
She added that she would insist on banning food production of different content and quality under the same brand.
