Abstract in another language

In recent years, food law has taken on an increasingly prominent role in political discourse, with calls for a more sustainable food system challenging the legal status quo. A thorough legal perspective is thus indispensable for grasping the complexities of the EU food system and political quests for change.

In the first monograph of its kind, Hanna Schebesta and Kai Purnhagen offer an authoritative and comprehensive overview of EU food legislation. Drawing on the authors' experience researching and teaching in the field, EU Food Law explores how political paradigms have shaped the development of laws in a variety of domains, including food technology, food safety, food information, food quality, nutrition, and sustainability.

The book begins with insightful analyses of the historical foundations of EU food law and two existing umbrella frameworks: the General Food Law Regulation and the Official Controls Regulation. The book then presents an in-depth discussion of the food law acquis before contextualising EU law against international food law. Schebesta and Purnhagen have created the definitive resource on EU food law, offering a balanced treatment of the subject across eighteen carefully structured chapters. This volume is essential reading for students, academics, and practitioners alike
