DAIRY GROUPS OBJECT TO PLANT-BASED FOODS ASSN'S LABEL WORDING STANDARDS
Agri-Pulse reports:

The Plant-Based Foods Association has released standards for labeling non-dairy yogurt products that recommend using terms such as "plant-based," "dairy-free," or "non-dairy" in a prominent position.

Makers of those and other products are fighting efforts by milk producers at both the federal and state level to prevent them from using dairy terms.

The National Milk Producers Federation dismissed the standards as insufficient. NMPF's Clay Detlefsen said: "Putting forth a voluntary standard that simply codifies illegal behavior does nothing more than allow malefactors to pick and choose whether they feel like following the law, depending on their perceived marketing gain."
