Spain hopes that the EC will take its food chain regulations into account

The General Secretary of Agriculture and Food, Carlos Cabanas, hopes that the regulations that the European Commission is preparing to improve the functioning of the food chain and trade relations resemble the ones that Spain has already had in force for five years.

Cabanas has admitted that the Ministry "would love" for the EU food chain regulations "to be a copy" of the Spanish ones, but also acknowledged that the EC will have to propose "what it believes will be better for all countries."

In any case, he also warned that the approval of the EC's proposal could still take up to two years.

Regarding the fight against food waste, Cabanas recalled that since 2013, Spain has had the campaign "More food, less waste" in place, and that it has managed to reduce the volume of wasted food in homes by about 4%.
