EU food comply is a specialised consultancy for food regulatory affairs and compliance in the European Union. Our business model has its roots at food multinationals, where new needs must be filled with top level performance at inter-European level. Our crew combines former food multinational managers, former food legislation specialists at the European Commission, and food law academics with food-relevant experience. We integrate legal and technical aspects for increased efficiency in food regulatory compliance.
