This document provides detail on a food product from the UK, Devon cider, which was being considered under the EU protected food names scheme.
Following the formal application and consultation process, Department for Environment Food and Rural Affairs (‘Defra’) as Competent Authority for the scheme in the UK have now carefully considered all the information relevant to the application. It has been concluded that the application does not satisfy the requirements of the scheme and it is not appropriate to forward the application to the Commission.
If you disagree with this decision you may submit an appeal to Defra by midnight on the 18 December 2018.
Appeals should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org and will be considered by an appropriate official not directly involved in the original application. They will consider any new information provided before confirming or amending the decision.
