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.

Note: the site is undergoing some changes - apologies if some links do not work correctly!
