Abstract: 
This paper investigates the relationship between the diffusion of EU standards and product quality upgrading using highly disaggregated import data to the EU in the food industry. Results show that, on average, the diffusion of EU voluntary standards boosts the rate of quality upgrading. However the results are heterogeneous when moving from primary to processed foods, and from ISO to non-ISO standards.
