European Union – Packaging. The Court of Justice of the European Union gave a preliminary ruling, deciding that art 1(3)(b) of Directive (EC) 2000/13 had to be interpreted as meaning that each of the individual portions of honey presented in the form of portion-cups closed by an aluminium seal and packed in cartons supplied to mass caterers constituted a 'pre-packaged foodstuff' where the mass caterers sold those portions separately or offered them for sale to the ultimate consumer as part of pre-prepared meals for an all-inclusive price.
