European food and drink is the safest in the world. But how did we achieve this? How is industry keeping it so safe? And how can policymakers help?

Ahead of #WorldFoodSafetyDay, on June 7, Rebeca Fernandez from FoodDrinkEurope tells us how food safety remains the industry’s top priority. 

Safe food is not just critical for public health, but also vital for food security, economic development and trade.

In the EU food safety is guaranteed thanks to a wide range of regulatory and self-regulatory measures covering the entire food chain, from production, to processing, transport, import and export and retail sales.
