The German EU Council Presidency enters the final stretch. Under strict Covid-19 measures, the last Council meeting of the EU Agriculture Ministers, chaired by Federal Minister of Food and Agriculture Julia Klöckner, takes place in Brussels on 15 and 16 December.

The focus of the two-day Council meeting under the German Presidency is on fixing the 2021 fishing opportunities in the Atlantic Sea, the Baltic Sea and other EU as well as international waters. In addition to that, the Council plans to adopt conclusions on an EU-wide animal welfare label as well as on three matters related to food labelling law: nutrition labelling, nutrient profiles and origin labelling.
