star this property answer text <p>In EU food law, the expectation is that food is not contaminated. Food must be safe and fit for human consumption.

Our research has found that consumer food prices depend on a range of factors, including commodity prices, currency exchange rates, and oil prices, and this will continue to be the case when we leave the EU.</p><p> </p><p>We work closely with industry to promote transparency for consumers and internationally to promote open global markets. The work we are doing helps to support a competitive domestic market so producers and retailers can offer the best prices.</p><p> </p> more like this
