- The initial legislation to introduce a single market in foodstuffs throughout the EC has been wending its way through the Community for two or three years. The five major directives are on food labelling, additives, food for particular nutritional use, plastics in contact with foodstuffs and official inspection of foodstuffs. However, it is claimed, there is virtually nothing on hygiene. A proposed directive has been suggested and is presented.
