Food law experts to hold master session in Spain

Two-day congress will focus on food quality and food safety controls.

Experts in food law and regulation are holding a two-day master session, "From Agricultural to Food Law: The New Scenario," Sept. 20 and 21 in Sevilla, Spain.

Participants from across the food and nutrition sector, academics and regulators are invited to attend the 19th International Scientific Congress at the Gran Meliá Colón Hotel in Sevilla, Spain.

This two-day congress will focus on the interrelationship between food quality, food safety controls and the new food information to consumer regulation.

“Our long-standing congress will examine the evolution of Agricultural and Food Law as an integral part of European law and will take a look at the latest developments in the field, focusing on five areas: the role of agricultural and food law in the system of European Law; regulations governing the quality of food, both in Europe and internationally; competition law as applied to agricultural and food production and trade, particularly the control of prices and the legal problems arising from the relationship between producers and retail sector; the control of food safety, specifically food alerts, and the food information to consumers regulation," says Guy Valkenborg, Secretary General of EFLA.

Speakers include European Commission officials, designation of origin Council representatives, international lawyers, university lecturers, and others offering a legal comparative prospective on the most important issues of today.
