Ombudsman Maya Manolova on visit to Brussels to present petition by Bulgarian citizens against double standards in food and beverages

Brussels. Ombudsman Maya Manolova is going on a two-day visit to Brussels to present a petition by Bulgarian citizens against double standards in food and beverages in the European Union, said the Ombudsman's press office. The hearing will take place on 22 January 2019 at 10:00 at the European Parliament’s Committee on Petitions.
Ombudsman Maya Manolova, as an EU citizen, together with a number of public figures, sent a petition to the European Parliament on 2 October 2017 for a change in the EU legislation, including the Unfair Commercial Practices Directive. Its goal was to stop the production and distribution in the EU member states of food products of the same brand with different ingredients and quality. According to Manolova, this violates the rights not only of Bulgarian citizens but also of the citizens of Visegrad Four, Greece, Croatia and Romania, as well as the principles of the single market.
On 30 April 2018, under the Bulgarian Presidency of the Council of the EU, the Ombudsman organised a high-level forum in Sofia, under the patronage of Prime Minister Boyko Borissov, with the participation of the Commissioner for Justice, Consumers and Gender Equality Vera Jourova, Commissioner for Digital Economy and Society Mariya Gabriel, many European ministers and institutions from the EU member states. Vera Jourova presented the New Deal for Consumers and announced the end of the double standard, as well as the Commission's commitment to propose amendments to EU legislation.
