Debate: Food Quality in Europe

David Byrne"Consumers nowadays expect their food to be safe, wholesome, and tasty. As policy makers, we are seeking ways to push quality up the agenda in dialogue with consumers and stakeholders. We are focusing on how to develop the trend towards quality and diversity. I want to see a quality driven single market in foodstuffs," David Byrne said explaining the initiative.
