The EFLA Conference 2022 will focus on the topic of management of a food crisis from the food law perspective.
Chaired by M. Peter Loosen, the first session will be dedicated to the general topic food safety crisis. Prof. Bernd van der Meulen will open the session with a presentation addressing questions: What is safe food? How to interpret it? Is food law fit to deal with crisis? This will be followed by a speech from Ms. Nicole Coutrelis on the non-compliant food vs. unsafe food, which is unfit for normal consumption. After that Prof. Andreas Meisterernst will address the application of the precautionary principle in times of crisis. With help of several speakers, including Dr Ina Gerstberger, Ms. Manon Ombredane and Ms Mélanie Le Plaine Mileur, we will look into the ethylene oxide crisis and the different reactions to it from the EU member states. Finally, Mr. Vicente Rodriguez Fuentes will talk about food safety alerts and the overall impact on the industry of food recalls.
Chaired by Ms. Sarah Arayess, the second session, addressing food shortages and food waste, will start with a presentation by Prof. Kai Purnhagen on sustainability as a factor of proportionality and the modern interpretation of food law. Ms Paola Corte will look into practical examples of the sustainability of our food laws. After that Ms Joanna Krakowiak will talk about food labelling and food safety issues in times of war and in particular about the sunflower oil crises and different reactions from member states.
