Abstract

Why did we need a new food safety bill? This latest legislation on food, needed because of the rapid pace of change in the food industry and technology, is aimed at restoring public confidence. The main provisions of the Act are examined: food safety; enforcement powers; consumer protection; regulation making powers and defences. This streamlined legislation will offer, it is argued, greater flexibility and wider powers.
