The food industry must be kept at bay from the risk assessment of its products
A director of the biggest EU food industry lobby group, FoodDrinkEurope, has found her way into the shortlist of candidates to the Management Board of the European Food Safety
Authority (EFSA). A current member of EFSA’s Board belonged to the public sector when
appointed but is now director of the national food industry association in Denmark, reapplying to EFSA’s Board. Two other current members of the Board, also re-applying for the position, have strong ties to the agro-food industry. Member States have the final word on these appointments and must act to protect the agency’s independence.
