Different standards in quality of products on the internal market got a new impetus in October 2017 by a statement delivered by Jean-Claude Juncker, the President of the European Commission. Juncker stated that different quality of two equally-looking products within the EU is unacceptable. The Commission subsequently issued guidelines for Member States to implement EU food legislation and started to develop a uniform methodology for testing composition. Dual quality of food in the EU single market was also discussed by the representatives of EU and Czech institutions, food producers and sellers and the general public on 8th December 2017 in the European House in Prague.
