Federal Council’s decision on bakery products

Two days ago, the Federal Council has decided that bakery products sold in Switzerland will have to get their source indicated. In particular, the bakeries and restaurants will have to clearly show to clients the country of origin of bread and bread made food (such as sandwiches). A draft bill will be submitted to the Parliament to this end. Due to the imports of cheaper frozen products, about sixty bakeries go out of business each year. The economic damage also result in a loss of know-how. With this measure, Swiss made croissants will gain market visibility and… get eaten even faster!
