Expert group on General Food Law and sustainability of food systems

About this Expert Group

The expert group on general food law was established in 2014 to monitor the application of Regulation (EC) No 178/2002 on general food law in the Member States, as well as to address any future revision of that Regulation. It is composed of Member States’ representatives, responsible for the above-mentioned Regulation and having expertise in food law. The original configuration of the group was not considered appropriate to discuss issues relating to the implementation of the Farm to Fork Strategy which go beyond matters of food law as such and require a broader and deepened range of expertise. Therefore, the group was revamped in 2021 to include further expertise in health/nutrition, environment/climate, and agriculture/fisheries-related areas.
