With the present issue the British Food Journal attains its majority. For the last twenty‐one years the Journal has devoted its pages to matters directly or indirectly relating to the repression of adulteration and to the efficient and proper administration of the Sale of Food and Drugs Acts and the Public Health Acts. If the Journal has in any way contributed to the efficient and proper administration of these Acts, it has performed a real public service, the magnitude of which can best be appreciated by those whose daily work brings them in contact with these matters. The policy of the Journal remains the same to‐day as it was when the Journal was established. Correct and reliable reports of food adulteration cases and cases of fraudulent trading form one of the main features of the Journal, but it is not intended to be, and has never been, an organ solely concerned with the directly‐visible aspect of these matters as revealed by the reports of legal proceedings and by official reports submitted to the Authorities.
