Swedish food policy in the EU - Governance and


Since the crisis in the food industry in the late 1990:s, with the outbreak of Mad Cow Decease, the European food policies have undergone major change.

A new administrative organisation has been established, with a new European agency, the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA). A new Regulatory Committees has been set up to assist the Commission, called the Standing Committee on the Food Chain and Animal Health (SCFCAH) and also a Commission service, the Food and Veterinary Office (FVO), located in Ireland. In this report a study is carried out on how the Swedish central government agency, The National Food Administration, cooperates with these European organs and how this affects governance and accountability of Swedish food policy.'

The report is a part of the research project The EU food policy and was presented at the seminar The Food Policy of the European Union.
