Lost in the supermarket

EU food law does not adequately protect European citizens from food scandals. This is criticized by the international consumer organization foodwatch in its new report „Lost in the Supermarket“. The more than 50-page report gives an in-depth analysis of the food law of the European Union – and reveals fundamental weaknesses. For example, traceability along the food supply chain is not being consistently enforced and authorities are still not obliged to inform consumers quickly and comprehensively about health risks posed by foodstuffs.
