Dr David Jukes, The University of Reading, UK

..... ..... ..... ..... ..... .....


It was in early 1996 that I was encouraged (by Ralph Blanchfield) to start using the internet to promote my work and that of the Food Science and Technology Department at the Univeristy of Reading. In May that year I launched my food law site and in July 1996, prompted by e-mail enquiries from the USA, I provided the first internet listing of E-numbers for food additives. The site has continued now for 20 years as a one-man effort. Work has not always been continuous as other things sometimes are a higher priority. However I continue to provide it as an educational tool and a site providing access to official documents - I hope that it fulfills this purpose. I also hope that I will be able to continue this work for some time to come. David Jukes

Welcome to the home page of 'Foodlaw-Reading'. Based at the University of Reading, UK, the site is maintained by Dr David Jukes. It seeks to provide easy access to sources of information on current food laws and its development. The main focus is on the UK and the EU although some additional information in international developments is also provided (especially issues linked to Codex and the WTO). It is hoped that it will also help those seeking to learn about and understand food law issues. Please note that it is maintained as time permits and updates may at times be delayed.
