Food Standards Agency

The Food Standards Agency was set up on April 1st 2000. The FSA aim is to make sure the food you eat is safe, and to offer independent, balanced advice. To do that, we need your input - what are the food issues that interest you, and what kind of information and advice would you find useful? We'll be using your replies to develop this site so that it provides the information you need to feel confident about the food you eat.

The Agency's functions are to:

  • provide advice and information to the public and to the Government on food safety from farm to fork, nutrition and diet
  • protect consumers through effective enforcement and monitoring
  • support consumer choice through promoting accurate and meaningful labelling

It will:

  • base its decisions and advice on the best evidence available
  • consult widely before it takes action and makes recommendations unless urgent action is essential
  • obtain independent expert advice from its advisory committees
  • commission research to support its functions
  • be prompt in making public its advice to the Government
