Companies can consult MVO regarding legislation in the field of quality and safety concerning vegetable and animal oils and fats or products thereof. In this part of the website you will find an overview of the most relevant legislation regarding general food law, contaminants, pesticides, animal fats, transport and packaging, hygiene and control. In addition, information on global applicable (Codex) rules concerning the abovementioned topics has also been added.
MVO has a seat in many consultative bodies on future legislation concerning abovementioned topics and tries to contribute to the realisation of legislation that does not lead to insurmountable objectives for the oils and fat sector in daily practice.
MVO is working closely together with the national (Vernof and VVS) and European branch organisations (FEDIOL and EFPRA) in advocating MVO companies regarding upcoming legislation.
