Food and drink are central in the lives of all of us and are, not surprisingly, subject to a wide variety of legislation; in fact, there are very few foods and food processes that are not regulated. It is surprising, therefore, that up to now there have been very few succinct texts dealing with the legal aspects of food and drink.;This new book aims to remedy the situation by presenting the law in a clear, straightforward and logical manner. It covers the whole of the food chain and deals with all aspects of the regulation of food production, processing and safety, with particular emphasis on EC law which is the basis for most of our domestic legislation. The book should prove a valuable reference for anyone who has to deal with food law in whatever cpacity.
