Regulation, Science & Sustainability Team

Director Helen Munday

About the Team

Based on FDF's strong support for evidence-based and proportionate legislation, this division helps shape and maintain a market environment in which UK food companies can flourish. We also provide a timely and expert service to help food companies address emerging issues and react to incidents and emergencies.

The team combines technical and regulatory expertise with a very good understanding of our members' interests a valuable network with regulators, NGOs and other stakeholders in the UK, Europe and globally. In a constantly changing regulatory environment, we keep FDF members up to date and ensure that their voice is heard by those with the ability to make a difference.

Examples of current interests include the review of the FDF Sustainability Strategy, implementation of the Food Information Regulation; input in the Public Health Responsibility Deal; food additives; hygiene; food contaminants and food contact materials; novel foods; and the coordination of the requirements of specialist food sectors (groups and associations).
