HC Deb 26 November 2002 vol 395 c229W
John Barrett

To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs what steps she is taking to ensure that coffee products sold in the UK are labelled to indicate coffee quality. [80946]

Ms. Blears

Specific quality claims are not required for coffee products and there are no plans to make them so. Where voluntary claims are made they must comply with the provisions on misleading or false descriptions or claims set out in the Food Safety Act 1990 and the Trade Descriptions Act 1968.
