The aim of the meeting was to evaluate the coordination at national level of food safety control by independent science-based consumer protection agencies, and to compare them with existing alternatives. The delegates comprised representatives of food control institutions in over 30 countries, including European Union (EU) accession countries, and senior staff of food control agencies in the EU that had reorganized their food safety control systems under the umbrella of a single food authority.
