[fre] L'origine des produits est la référence sur laquelle est construit le système français de normes de qualité dans l'agro-alimentaire. L'article précise le contenu de la notion d'origine et montre l'extension - datée et spécifique - de son utilisation comme signe de qualité en France. Une telle utilisation réclame l'intervention des pouvoirs publics. De ce fait, l'usage de l'origine comme norme de qualité se trouve au coeur de négociations européennes dont les enjeux sont la compétitivité nationale et la politique de la concurrence. [eng] Within the food industry, the French system of norms which specifies quality often refers to the origin of products. The article specifies the significance of such a reference in France and shows how the use of origin as a sign of quality recently extends. Such a use asks for the intervention of public authorities ad is therefore in the heart of European negotiations. The competition of Nations and competition policies are at stakes.
