Ministry: Italian wine to remain impounded until tracking completed
A consignment of about 50,000 hectoliters of Italian wine impounded by food safety authority Nébih on July 18 will remain under the ban until the tracking investigation is completed, the Ministry of Agriculture told Hungarian news agency MTI yesterday.
Officials of Nébih, the Ministry and the Italian authorities are in continuous consultations regarding the affected consignment, doing their best to solve the matter as soon as possible.
The Italian experts said the wines concerned do not carry a food safety risk but the documents ensuring tracking are still being examined.
It is the shared goal of the Hungarian and Italian authorities to take action against wine imitation and combat illegal trade, the ministry added.
