The European Union, as a major global trader of food and feed, has entered into
international trade agreements and contributed to the development of international standards which
underpin food law. It also supports the principles of free trade in safe food and feed following fair and
ethical trading practices. This is of enormous importance to citizens in Europe and around the world whether
they are politicians, traders or consumers.
