It's a European Union Competence stupid

David Cameron has called for a clearer labeling system in order to help people buy genuine British food. He said existing rules allowed imported products processed in the country to be labeled as British.

Addressing the Oxford Farming Conference, Cameron said British consumers may find it difficult to support British produce because of the inadequate labeling.

Statutory Instrument 1998 No. 1398 The Food Labelling (Amendment) Regulations 1998

These Regulations, which apply to Great Britain, amend the Food Labelling Regulations 1996 ("the principal Regulations"). The Regulations implement European Parliament and Council Directive 97/4/EC amending Directive 79/112/EEC on the approximation of the laws of the Member States relating to the labelling, presentation and advertising of foodstuffs. This Directive is commonly known as "QUID".

Unless a British government repeals the European communities Act 1972, then statements on food labelling from Cameron will remain as vacuous as his statement that he will pull the conservatives out of the European Peoples Party
