EFSA’s new brochure “Science protecting consumers from field to fork” provides a concise overview of the Authority’s role in the EU food safety system. Europe’s food chain is continually evolving and EFSA’s remit has evolved to cover an increasingly complex number of areas related to the safety of the food chain: food-borne diseases, contaminants, animal health and welfare, plant protection, food production and distribution as well as food sector innovation to name a few. This brochure shows in a simple yet instructive way how the advice that EFSA provides to risk managers underpins many of the laws and regulations in place to protect European consumers from food-related risks – from field to fork.
