From farm to fork : safe and healthy food for everyone
Protecting the health of humans, animals and plants at every stage of the food production process is a key public health and economic priority. The European Union's (EU's) food safety policy aims to ensure that EU citizens enjoy safe and nutritious food produced from healthy plants and animals, whilst enabling the food industry — Europe's largest manufacturing and employment sector — to operate in the best possible conditions. This publication is a part of a series that explains what the EU does in different policy areas, why the EU is involved and what the results are.
