In addition to supplying members with technical and legislative developments both nationally and abroad, the service also operates a 'hotline' for companies with specific queries. The Regulatory & Environment Committee monitors and interprets all national and EU food and drink legislation.
The Committee disseminates information on all legislative and technical issues, which impact on its members. Representation is frequently made to Government Departments and EU institutions both on specific company issues as well as those that affect the entire food and drink industry.
Through its membership of FoodDrinkEurope, FDI is also involved with legislative discussions at an EU level. The Committee also liaises directly with Government agencies such as the Food Safety Authority of Ireland, the Department of Agriculture and Food and the Marine, the Department of Health, etc. to represent the views of industry across a range of issues.
