I used to be British correspondent for FFE Europe trade mag. that went to Supermarket wholesale buyers. Some time I seem to remember there was something out of Brussels that said, in effect, that if Britain imported produce from another country, and it was packed in UK, it could be labelled 'British'. Was that hit on the head?
