The introduction of the General Food Law (GFL) marks a major step
in the European Union's reform of food law. It provides the center
of gravity for further modernization of the large body of EU and
national food law. "Food Safety Law in the European Union" analyses
the substantive and procedural elements of food law, taking the GFL
as a focus point. In substantive law general principles are
treated, as well as the rules on the composition of food, the
handling of food, and the communication about food. This is treated
in combination with procedural and institutional elements of food
law. EU food law is intertwined with general EU law to provide both
the foundation and the limits for food law. General EU law
determines the division of powers, the institutions that exercise
these powers, the available tools, the effects they have, and
substantive limits to the choices that can be made for food law. It
provides the protection of all who can be affected by food law.
"Food Safety Law in the European Union" is written with the
perspective of food law embedded in general EU law, highlights the
consequences of this combination, and provides insights in both
substantive and procedural EU food law.
