Luxembourg – Luxembourg to set up new food agency

Food Safety News

Luxembourg is to get a single agency in charge of official controls in the food chain.

Legislators in the country voted this past week to create the Luxembourg Veterinary and Food Administration (ALVA).

The new authority will bring together all official controls relating to the food supply chain under the remit of the Minister of Agriculture, Viticulture and Rural Development.

Minister of Consumer Protection and Health Paulette Lenert said the reform would bring together services currently under the supervision of three different ministries and involve 100 people.
