Food safety

01-02-2018

European food safety policy aims are twofold: to protect human health and consumers’ interests, and to foster the smooth operation of the European single market. The EU thus ensures that control standards are established and adhered to in the areas of feed and food-product hygiene, animal health, plant health and the prevention of food contamination from external substances. The Union also regulates labelling for food and feed products.
