Ministers: voedselveiligheid verder versterken urgent

De Commissie Sorgdrager heeft een grondige analyse gemaakt van de wijze waarop de fipronilcrisis is afgehandeld en spreekt alle relevante actoren –het bedrijfsleven, de toezichthouders en departementen– aan op hun functioneren.

Dat zijn de belangrijkste conclusies uit het rapport van de Commissie onderz...
