Food and Feed Safety (04-04-2005)

Food and Feed Operators are reminded of their responsibilities for food safety

The key obligations of food and feed operators when it comes to food safety have been outlined in a new leaflet by the Commission. The aim of the leaflet is to remind operators that, under EU Food Law, they have binding responsibilities for food put on the EU market. It will also provide consumers with a readable outline of what they should expect from food operators. The document sets out the obligations under seven headings:
  • Safety
  • Responsibility
  • Traceability
  • Transparency
  • Emergency
  • Prevention
  • Cooperation.
