Abstract

The Food Safety Act in the UK will have dramatic effects on thefood industry, but it will appear insignificant against the effects ofthe Single European Market. The laws that protect consumers andmanufacturers in individual member states are in danger of beingundermined, unless the EC laws that replace national laws provideequivalent protection. There is also concern that law enforcement takesa low priority in some member states. A number of recent legal casesillustrate that point, as well as historical incidences of foodstandards falling when specific restraints are removed, particularly asregards food content and labelling. A complete rethink is required onfood policy, the law and its enforcement throughout Europe.
