EU Ministers meeting in Brussels to discuss the horsemeat scandal have said that systems will be put in place to ensure there is no repeat of the debacle.
The Minister for Agriculture, Simon Coveney - who chaired the meeting - suggested one protective measure would be to put country-of-origin tags on all processed foods.
They are currently only used for fresh meats.
Minister Coveney said what is happening is fraud and it needs to stop.
