Call for expressions of interest in membership of the Advisory Group on the Food Chain and Animal and Plant Health
The European Commission is today launching a call for expressions of interest to complete the membership of the Advisory Group on the Food Chain and Animal and Plant Health. Current member organisations of the Advisory Group need not reapply.
The Advisory Group brings together 36 key stakeholder organisations representing farmers, the food industry, retailers, consumer organisations and others, out of a possible 45. The European Commission wishes to extend the current membership by incorporating sectors not already represented.
The European Commission consults the Advisory Group on food safety policy, and specifically on issues related to food and feed safety, food and feed labelling and presentation, human nutrition in relation to food legislation, animal health and welfare, and plant health etc.
The details of the call can be found at:
