working group feed

The working group was founded in 2003. The reason for the establishment was less the existence of a very specific question, but rather the knowledge that this area, which traditionally belongs to the field of activity of food chemists, has received too little attention from the LChG.

Another reason for the new activities was of course the recent emphasis placed on the close connection between food and feed by the European and national legislators.

The focus of the working group is on topics that connect feed and food, such as food and feed law and questions of feed analysis.


The working group currently has 14 members from the following areas:


  • Official surveillance
  • Independent testing laboratories
  • Universities
