Ministers: voedselveiligheid verder versterken urgent

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. Het beeld dat het rapport schetst is niet fraai.

Dat schrijven de ministers Bruno Bruins en Carola Sc...

Bedrijven in de eierketen maken hun wettelijke verantwoordelijkheid niet waar. Bij de NVWA krijgt voedselveiligheid te weinig aandacht. Politiek en bestuur hebben een te beperkte opvatting over hun eigen rol ten aanzien van voedselveiligheid en komen pas in actie als zich een incident of crisis voordoet. Dat zijn de belangrijkste conclusies uit het rapport van de Commissie onderz...
