73 views

On 6 May 2013, Tonio Borg, Member of the EC in charge of Health and Consumer Policy, gave a statement in Brussels on the European Commission's proposal regarding a modernised legal framework package on healthier animals and plants, and a safer food chain in Europe. The agri-food industry is the second largest economic sector in the EU, and in order to reinforce its safety and effectiveness, the European Commission adopted a package of measures to strengthen the enforcement of health and safety standards. Food safety is essential to ensure consumers' confidence and sustainability of food production. The package responds to the call for better simplification of legislation and smarter regulation thus reducing administrative burden for operators and simplifying the regulatory environment.
