Here you can find a recent article, drafted together with my colleague and friend Nicola Aporti, head of the food practice at HFG Shanghai, about the “non regulation” of the use of “natural” claims in China, EU and USA. It is published on New Food Magazine.
To know more about the issue and meet both the authors, participate to the 1st Food Law in Asia Conference, 12th June 2017, Amsterdam, write me at firstname.lastname@example.org or meet me in Thaifex, World of Food Safety Conference, Bangkok (1st-2nd June 2017).
In another recent blog – published on New Food Magazine – I had the chance to examine the last proposal of Regulation on official controls on foodstuffs in Europe, with specific focus on the fraudulent practices issue.
The Regulation, repealing the Reg. (EC) No 882/2004, could be adopted early next year (first quarter?), and just last week on the EU Official Journal, has been published another piece of the “smarter rules for safer food” package: the plant health controls regulation (Reg. (EU) No 2016/2031).
