PARLIAMENT_UK 29/04/21 MPs urge Government to level playing field for meat and seafood exporters. Report findings In its new report—Seafood and Meat Exports to the EU—the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (EFRA) Committee expresses urgent concerns for exporters of highly time-sensitive fresh and live seafood and meat shipments to the EU, particularly small and medium sized businesses.
Despite overcoming initial "teething problems" the new barriers small seafood and meat export businesses face could render them unviable, and factories and jobs may relocate to the EU. The Committee's report therefore calls on the Government to ease burdens, including: The Committee criticises the fact that controls on EU seafood and meat imports will not commence until 1 October 2021, with checks at the border only commencing from 1 January 2022.
This has placed British businesses at a competitive disadvantage and reduced the incentive on the European Commission to negotiate measures that would lessen the burdens facing British producers.

NEW FOOD MAGAZINE 17/11/20 Research finds US food production unpopular among Brits. Research identifies discomfort from Brits over US food production methods, such as chlorine-washed chicken, and shows favour for EU systems despite Brexit stance.
Consumers were not keen on US production methods such as chlorine-washed chicken according to the research New research from the University of Kent, the University of Reading and IHS Markit finds that UK consumers dislike food produced using production methods such as hormones in beef and chlorine washed chicken. The research also reveals that UK consumers highly value food production that adheres to food safety standards set by the EU as well as food made in the UK – a finding which could prove all too relevant in the months to come as the Brexit transition period comes to an end.
These methods of food production are common in the USA but are prohibited under EU food safety regulations. Trade and Agriculture Commission is here to stay The results confirmed that UK consumers dislike food produced using these production methods. NAO_ORG_UK 12/06/19 Ensuring food safety and standards.

Background to the report Failures in food safety can have catastrophic consequences for human life, public confidence and the wider economy. People can fall ill if they eat food that has been contaminated by bacteria because of poor food hygiene, or if they eat food that is not what it says it is. The food supply system is highly complex.

BLOG D ALBERT AMGAR 23/06/16 Royaume-Uni : Création de ‘Food Crime Confidential’.
Un communiqué de la Food standards Agency annonce que La National Food Crime Unit (NFCU) a lancé le 23 juin 2016 « Food Crime Confidential », un centre de déclaration où la criminalité alimentaire peut être rapporté en toute sécurité et en toute confiance, par téléphone et par e-mail.
Le centre est particulièrement destiné aux personnes qui travaillent dans ou autour de l’industrie alimentaire au Royaume-Uni. La National Food Crime Unit de la FSA travaille avec des partenaires pour protéger les personnes contre une activité criminelle grave qui influe sur la sécurité sanitaire ou l’authenticité des aliments et des boissons qu’ils consomment. Le crime alimentaire implique la malhonnêteté à tout stade de la production ou la fourniture d’aliments. Cela est souvent complexe et susceptible d’être gravement préjudiciable aux consommateurs, aux entreprises ou à l’intérêt public en général. PARLIAMENT_UK 24/03/15 Defra needs strong leadership and expertise to support UK environment and farming.
24 March 2015 MPs are concerned that the hollowing out of Defra has left the core Department less effective in persuading decision-makers in other government departments and Brussels to follow its agenda.
Firm Ministerial leadership and sufficient in-house expertise is needed at the heart of Defra to ensure it can deliver its priorities effectively. Chair's comments Committee Chair, Anne McIntosh MP commented: "Defra is a small government department so must punch above its weight if it is to deliver its cross-cutting aims for the environment, rural communities and British farming, at home and in Brussels. The Environment, Food and Rural Affairs Committee today publishes, Work of the Committee: 2010-15, its review of its scrutiny of Defra over the past five years.

Bosses at Medway Council said huge improvements have been made to make sure businesses are complying with food hygiene regulations.
The authority has hit back at a damning report which placed Medway among the worst in the country for inspection checks. Councils that have been failing to ensure food businesses comply with hygiene regulations have been named and shamed by consumer watchdog Which? In a report published this week. The investigation, using data from the Food Standards Agency (FSA), rated 395 local authorities based on the number of inspections it carries out, how many high and medium-risk food premises were not complying with safety rules, the amount of follow-up action taken and the percentage of premises yet to receive a risk rating.

THE PARLIAMENT MAGAZINE 25/06/14 New parliament must ensure veterinary legislation becomes 'more efficient'
Animal health products play an essential role not only in safeguarding public and animal health but also as a key tool in Europe’s agri-food business.
With the legislation governing veterinary medicines due for review this autumn in the new parliament, it’s time to complete the journey to one true single market. The single market is a European policy now more than 30 years in the making. The ideal is there and there are processes in place which allow for animal health products to be made available to farmers and vets across Europe but the procedures involved are burdensome in terms of administrative tasks and they are costly (double that of human medicines). Despite the evidence showing that having to seek marketing authorisation in each of the 28 member states is far from cost-effective, there is a continued lack of harmonisation in the rules governing veterinary medicines. This means that considerable finance is essentially being diverted away from research and development.

BBC 28/11/13 Food outlets will be forced to display hygiene ratings. 28 November 2013Last updated at 07:31 ET The Welsh government scheme rates outlets from zero to five based on how food is prepared, cooked and stored Wales has become the first part of the UK to force food outlets to prominently display food hygiene ratings. The new law, which came into force on Thursday, builds on a voluntary scheme which was introduced three years ago. Over the next 18 months, restaurants, takeaways and supermarkets must display ratings from 0 (lowest) to 5 (highest).
But the Federation of Small Businesses (FSB) is still worried that food premises with poor ratings will not get their re-inspections quickly enough. Continue reading the main story.

PARLEMENT EUROPEEN - Réponse à question E-011011-13 Étiquetage des denrées alimentaires: système britannique des «feux de signal.
À la suite d'une recommandation émise, le 19 juin 2013, par le ministère britannique de la santé, la grande distribution au Royaume-Uni procède à un étiquetage des produits alimentaires conformément à un système de codes de couleurs (rouge, orange et vert) qui varient selon la teneur en matières grasses, en graisses saturées, en sel et en sucre des aliments. Cette recommandation a été adoptée sur une base volontaire, conformément à l'article 35, paragraphe 2, du règlement (UE) n° 1169/2011.
Le même règlement dispose que certaines exigences doivent être respectées (article 35, paragraphe 1) et que la Commission doit adopter des actes d'exécution. Tout système qui classifie les denrées alimentaires sur la seule base de leur teneur en matières grasses risque de pénaliser de nombreux produits européens (le parmigiano reggiano, la mozzarella, d'autres fromages, le jambon, etc.) qui seraient alors réputés «mauvais pour la santé», malgré la qualité élevée de ces produits. 1. 2. 3.
