“This incident has highlighted the necessity to ensure the effectiveness of national control systems which underpin the confidence of all EU Member states and third countries in our Food and Feed safety measures.
In order to address these issues,
- I am exploring the possibility to establish a strict segregation of the production of fats and oils intended for feed and food purposes from the production of fats and oils for technical uses, and
- I am considering the possibility of legal requirements on reinforced controls on dioxins at different stages of the feed chain.
I am confident that these measures, when endorsed and adopted, will bring the necessary improvements to our already solid Food and Feed Safety system,” ,” he told MEPs.
