Events held in Malta to mark five years of BTSF

The European Commission Better Training for Safer Food programme (BTSF) managed by the Consumers, Health and Food Executive Agency (Chafea) celebrates the fifth anniversary of its launch in 2011. Events to mark the occasion were held in Malta on 18 November. They were attended by European Commissioner for Health and Consumers, John Dalli.

BTSF trains national-level staff of EU Member States and third countries involved in checking compliance with EU food, feed, animal health and welfare and plant health rules. By increasing officials' awareness of relevant EU legislation, it contributes to making controls in these areas more effective and harmonised.
