March issue of FSA e-News published today
The latest issue of FSA e-News, which is now available online, includes news and updates on some of the Agency’s activities over the past month.
It contains an update, from the FSA Chief Executive Catherine Brown, on the Agency’s investigation into the presence of horse meat in products labelled as beef. It also includes a report on the work that is being done via our citizens forums, where members of the public were asked their opinion on how the horse meat incident has affected them and their faith in the food chain.
In the rest of our pages there is an article on the Agency's priorities for 2013/14 and main findings of the recently completed review of official controls delivery.
We also feature the continuation of our campaign highlighting the Food Hygiene Rating Scheme and the Food Hygiene Information Scheme. It aims to remind the public not to use appearance alone as a way of judging the hygiene of a place they plan to eat at, especially if there are plans to book a meal out this Easter. There is also news from the nations, which includes the proposed new food body for Scotland.
This issue carries reports of consultations that are under way, calls to tender that have been published recently and summaries of the latest FSA research.
