Summary fiche

Welcome to the BTSF Training Programme on Food hygiene-flexibility.

In order to protect food diversity and to serve consumers and the needs of small-scale producers, EU legislation provides ample possibilities to adapt the technical requirements of the Food Hygiene Package in function of the nature of the food business concerned. Information and training can be strategic tools to help the Member States to develop a better understanding of the provisions and fine-tune use of flexibility measures contained in the hygiene Regulations.

  • Inspections of small processing establishments of food of animal and non-animal origin.
