The EU food policy

Timeframe: Completed
Project Manager: Josefin Almer Wulff

In this project different aspects of the EU food policy is analysed from a legal perspective. The EU food policy has undergone major changes the last couple of years. Before the so-called BSE crisis in the 1990’s the European food policy was fragmentized and lacking clear goals. After the crisis the EU food policy was given its own status as a policy and nowadays it is largely based, inter alias, on a high degree of consumer protection. Issues regarding food and food safety are always of great importance in the EU as well as in the Member States. 

In this project some aspects of the reform of the EU:s food policy is analysed from a legal perspective.
