Food (market surveillance)


In producers, egg packing centres and slaughterhouses as well as in wholesalers and distribution centres of the retail trade (the so-called "bottlenecks" of marketing), agricultural products of animal and plant origin are checked by quality inspectors for compliance with the EU-uniform or German quality standards, quality characteristics and commercial classes. Uniform quality criteria facilitate Community trade and thus ensure that the population is supplied with consistently high quality.

Monitoring activities take place mainly in the market sectors of beef and pork, eggs and poultry, fruit, vegetables and table potatoes (economic consumer protection).

Who should I contact?

In Lower Saxony, the State Office for Consumer Protection and Food Safety is responsible for market surveillance.
