22-12-2007 - Workshop underlines key role of veterinarian “The veterinarian should remain the key figure in
food hygiene, stressed Horst Schnellhardt MEP.
Speaking at a workshop in the European
Parliament on the implementation of the Hygiene
Package, organised by Demeter International on 7
November, he also recalled that “official
authorities and veterinarians should focus on
consultancy for food business operators.”6
The workshop addressed the opportunities and
risks of the new hygiene regulations, the effects
and limitations of normative procedures regarding
consumer protection and food safety, and how to
stimulate new concepts in consumer protection
policies.
While participants welcomed the hygiene package
as a flexible tool for consumer protection, most
saw problems arising due to regional and national
differences in the implementation of the
legislation. The meeting was attended by
Members of the European Parliament (Friedrich-
Wilhelm Graefe zu Baringdorf, Horst
Schnellhardt), of the Commission (including
Willem Daelman, DG Sanco) and by different
stakeholders, including the FVE (represented by
Nicole Schreiner).
