Notification of Traditional Foods from Third Countries as Novel Foods – Which lessons can be learned after a few years of implementation? Journal Artikel

Joana Oliveira, Francesco Montanari, Inês Ferreira

European Food and Feed Law Review, Jahrgang 17 (2022), Ausgabe 6, Seite 386 - 398

This article provides an analysis of the notifications of traditional foods (TFs) from third countries (TCs) at European Union (EU) level that were submitted from the entry into application of Regulation (EU) 2015/2283 on novel foods (1st January 2018) until 1st October 2022, with a view to gaining a better understanding of the implementation of this new procedure. To this end, both notifications of TFs already approved by the European Commission (EC) (nine in total) and those currently awaiting approval (eight) were examined. As a result of the analysis performed, insights are given into the type of products notified, their origin, the identity of the applicants and the country where the latter are based, the overall duration of the notification procedure and the impact that the lack of data protection may have on the approval pathway that applicants ultimately decide to follow, among others. These research findings can be useful for prospective novel foods applicants targeting the EU market as well as for all policymakers and regulators dealing with food innovation and international trade.

European Food and Feed Law Review, Jahrgang 15 (2020), Ausgabe 4, Seite 336 - 356

This research article aims at providing a preliminary assessment of the impact of COVID-19 on the EU agri-food sector between March and May 2020. To this end, an analysis of the policy and legislative measures adopted during this period at EU level is first provided. Then, national experiences of nine Member States – i.e. Belgium, Germany, Greece, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania and Spain – are described in detail, illustrating, for each country, the most relevant impacts and responses by competent authorities and stakeholders alike. Overall, whilst one can conclude that the EU agri-food sector has shown a high degree of resilience at the onset of the pandemic, the latter has nevertheless revealed its vulnerability to external threats and, with it, the need to guarantee a proper level of preparedness to ensure, in future, food security on the EU market during similar crisis.
