Your substances


Starting July 1, 2023, the sale of fruit and vegetables wrapped in plastic will be prohibited once again, as stated in Decree N°2023-478. This decree, which was officially published in the Official Journal (JORF) on Wednesday, June 21, 2023, aims to regulate the ban on plastic packaging for fruit and vegetables. The ban will have exemptions for 29 specific fruits and vegetables, as well as ripe fruit. This represents an increase of six exemptions compared to the draft order that was proposed for consultation in late 2022. Additionally, the final version of the decree includes relaxed provisions for disposing of existing stock and introduces a specific exemption for rubber bands.
