Under the Agriculture and Food Bill, ten Republican MPs tabled an amendment to defend chocolatine and other popular expressions.
The chocolatine perhaps just won a major battle against the “Pain au Chocolat”. In the National Assembly , ten deputies of the party The Republicans have tabled an amendment in the draft law Agriculture and Food.
Objective: promote the word chocolate, says Le Parisien . MEPs make a wish; namely that the Rural and Fisheries Code includes “the valorization of the name of use and notoriety of a product”.
At the maneuver, there are not only deputies from the Southwest . If Aurélien Pradié (Lot) is a spokesperson on this issue, we note that some authors come from territory where the “pain au chocolat” is the majority: Marc Le Fur (Côtes-d’Armor), Valérie Lacroute (Seine- et-Marne) and Michel Vialay (Yvelines).
Aurélien Pradié , member of the Lot, explains:
“This is not just an amendment to defend the chocolatine but an amendment that aims to protect popular expressions that showcase culinary know-how”
“Such a slight evolution of the law will restore the credibility of many local products,” said LR MPs. This is for example the case of a pastry whose name has historically originated in the Gascon region, and which is the pride of all the South of France: chocolatine. ”
“The examination of this amendment should take place on Wednesday, May 30,” says La Depeche .
