The European Commission plays a key role in developing and implementing sound food policies that protect the well-being of consumers and safeguard public health. Ensuring that safe food reaches our plates is a complex task involving diverse actors: farmers, food producers, retailers and control laboratory personnel among others.
The European Commission’s in-house science service, the Joint Research Centre (JRC), supports the EU’s work in securing the safety and quality of our food, promoting at the same time the sustainable use of resources.
