CORNELIA PETROMAN, I. PETROMAN, GH. SECHEL, DIANA MARIN

Abstract


The National Authority for Consumers’ Protection is concerned to survey the market of agro-alimentary produce; as a result of the punctual programme, it develops control activities in order to check quality / conformity of foodstuff supplied for sale. Meat preparations are the most demanded and preferred; this is why they have paid particular attention to quality, labelling, marketing, and storage. Of the total 87 complaints concerning lack of compliance with the standards of such items as fruits, milk, meat, vegetables, bread and bakery, alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, coffee, chocolate, and fish preparations, only 31 proved justified. We can see that of the total complaints only 35.63% are justified and that they concern such produce as biscuits, fresh and refrigerated fish, vegetable and fruit juices, pet foods, spirits, beer, and non-alcoholic beverages.
