In addition to the regional committee, I am also a deputy member of the environmental committee (ENVI). For the European SPD, I am specifically responsible for the topics of food safety, chemicals and animal health. For me, healthy nutrition is one of the big topics of the future.
One part of my field of work is the labeling and safety of food. I am also following the discussions about a “nutritional traffic light”, which is for consumers that they can see and compare the sugar, fat and salt content of processed foods. Fertile soils, clean water, a diverse flora and fauna as well as healthy and safe food (for today’s and future generations) are also topics which are important to me. We need clear rules for chemicals, in which the protection of human and animal health must always have priority.
