Another huge layer of needless, mind-numbing, EU bureaucracy - not to mention, jobs for the boys.

New advisory group on the food chain created

30/08/2004 - A group bringing together notably consumers, the food industry, retailers and farmers is being created to facilitate consultation and dialogue between the European Commission and European organisations on food safety policy. The Advisory Group on the Food Chain and Animal and Plant Health will meet at least twice a year and consist of up to 45 members from EU-level associations. Reflecting the Commission's "farm to fork" approach to food safety, the group will be consulted on a wide range of food policy matters. Additionally, the Commission intends to create an Internet based consultative forum on food safety open to all European organisations with an interest in this area of policy. The new Advisory Group is likely to meet for the first time towards the end of this year.
