Workshop on Food Labelling Brussels 5 November 2008 Consolidated Texts

05-11-2008

In January 2008, the European Commission adopted a proposal for a Regulation on the "Provision of food information to consumers" (COM(2008)40), thus combining several food labelling directives. In order to get a balanced picture of the variety of views seriously considered among professionals in this field, a workshop on Food Labelling has been organised on request of the Members of the Environment, Public health and Food Safety Committee. The workshop - hosted by Rapporteur Ms Sommer - will include presentations of 3 experts, followed by a question & answer session (Q&A). During the expert sessions and the Q&A, a sandwich lunch is available to the participants of the workshop. Date: Wednesday 5 November 2008
