Call For Evidence in Food Supply Chain Review

Call For Evidence in Food Supply Chain Review
July 01
09:38 2013

A call for written evidence has been issued by Professor Chris Elliott as part of an independent review into UK food supply networks following the horsemeat scandal. Findings from the review will be used to form recommendations to Defra and the Department of Health about how the UK can increase the resilience of its food systems.

The call for evidence is an opportunity for members of the public and those involved in the food industry to have their say on the issues they think could affect the integrity of the food supply chain and affect consumer confidence.

Professor Elliott says: “To ensure my review is comprehensive and effective I want the public and all those involved in food supply and its governance and regulation to have the opportunity, through this call for evidence, to provide their perspective on the issues which affect resilience and consumer confidence. The review will provide advice to Defra, the Department of Health and the food industry. It will focus on any systemic failures in food supply networks and systems of oversight with implications for food safety and public health.”

Responses to the call for evidence are required by 7 August. The call for written evidence will be supplemented by meetings with key stakeholders over the next few months, which will provide further opportunities to submit views.

Professor Chris Elliott is Professor of Food Safety and Director of the Institute for Global Food Security at Queen’s University Belfast.
