Food (market surveillance)

In producers' holdings, egg packing centres and slaughterhouses, as well as in wholesale and retail distribution centres (the so-called 'bottle necks' of marketing), agricultural products of animal and plant origin are produced by Quality inspectors checked for compliance with EU uniform and German quality standards, quality characteristics and trade classes. Uniform quality criteria facilitate Community trade and thus ensure the supply of consistently high qualities to the population.

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