The Advisory Committee on Consumer Engagement reviews and assesses the Agency’s consumer engagement work and provides external challenge to the Executive that they are continuing to 'put the consumer first'. The committee meets two to three times a year and produces an annual report to the Board, which is discussed at an open Board meeting.
The Consumer advisory panel provides consumer insights into our work by supplementing consumers’ views and opinions obtained from direct engagement. It provides another strand of evidence in the development of policy.
The Food Standards Agency aims to ensure that imported foods meet the required UK standards, in order to protect the safety and interests of the consumer.
The aim of the Forums is to enable the main consumer organisations, pressure groups, industry and enforcement authorities to raise matters of broad concern with the Agency on an informal basis. They will be held twice a year.
