EU food law has grown of age. From a study adjacent to the law of the free movement of goods, it increasingly matures as an own area of law, competing at eye level with agricultural law. This chapter provides a very short introduction into the rationale of EU food law and the major legal acts, which describe this area. The rigorous application of the farm-to-fork approach across the whole supply chain makes the EU’s regulatory approach unique to the world.
