Since 2006 EFFL serves the needs of food and feed law experts by providing a unique platform to extract, elaborate and exchange their specialist knowledge and best practices. The law journal thus unknots the growing web of national, European and international food and feed rules and regulations, which are studied in bi-monthly contributions by legal scholars, scientists and experts from other relevant disciplines.
Aims & Scope
The purpose of EFFL is not only to generate and disseminate information related to food and feed law from relevant national, European and international sources; but also to analyse and evaluate important past and contemporary legal and policy developments in this sector.
EFFL gathers legal and scientific expertise from academia, policy and practice in and beyond the European Union, the law journal is therefore best known for offering an inclusive forum to present and ponder the collected knowledge and best practices in terms of food and feed law.
Topics covered by the journal include:
- food fraud, safety and inspection,
- ingredients, food additives and supplements,
- food labelling and advertising,
- nutritional declarations and health claims,
- functional food and novel food,
- food technology,
- compliance with European and international food and feed law.
To guarantee EFFL’s high-quality standards, all submissions are required to conform to the author guidelines.
