This book deals with all aspects of the law and policy relating to the production and distribution of food. It covers not only the UK domestic law in relation to food quality and safety but also examines the law relating to food in the wider European and International context. It evaluates the functioning of the Common Agricultural Policy, its effect on farming in the European Union and in the UK in particular and considers the proposals for its reform.
The international trade in food and the role of the World Trade Organisation are analysed. The book contains a section devoted to the issue of Genetically Modified Organisms and examines the legal, ethical and political issues arising in relation to the genetic modification of crops, with regard to both consumer protection and protection of the environment
