We all love food.
It contributes to the health of our families, our culture and traditions and our fondest memories.
In short, food is part of our identity.
“EU And My Food” is about safe and nutritious food. It’s about the health of our animals and how we treat them. It’s about taking care of our environment – the soil, water and air – which sustain the crops that produce so much of what we eat.
Food is family. Comfort. Joy. Identity. Food is life. And we are with you every step of the way. Keeping Europe’s food safe.
Animals are essential to the food chain. Their diseases are our diseases too. We make sure that animals are disease free, kept in humane conditions, do not suffer during transport and are not used for animal testing for food testing unless really necessary.
Climate change and modern farming methods are transforming food production. We need to protect our birds, bees and wildlife to secure our food supply and sustain biodiversity.
We carefully assess ingredients, processes, packaging and labelling and make sure nutrition and health claims are backed by science. So you can make informed choices. Safe Food and Nutritious Food for you and your family.
