Brussels unveils food safety comments
by FWi staff
THE European Commission has published a series of comments from interested parties regarding its Food Safety White Paper.
The White Paper, adopted in January, sets out a major programme of legislative reform to complete its “farm to table” approach to food safety.
It also proposed the establishment of a new European Food Authority.
Nearly 110 contributions were received after Brussels invited interested parties to comment in a bid to increase transparency at all levels of food safety.
In so far as their authors have agreed to publication, these comments are available on the Commissions Europa website
