Mathioudakis solves the case of the “missing claims”
Basil Mathioudakis, the Head of the European Commission unit on Food Law, Nutrition and Labelling tells Shane Starling how it came to be that a whole batch of European Union health claims somehow got lost in the system.

He says an addendum to the article 13.1 health claim list to be processed by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) would likely feature these claims.

The Commission had also committed to publishing the opinions batch-by-batch – just as EFSA was.

He also glances at the way ‘grey zone’ claims are being treated.
