Report on food safety control


Report no. 15/2023

The purpose of the study is to assess whether the Food Administration’s inspection of food packaging is satisfactory. 

It is Rigsrevisionen’s assessment that the Ministry of Food, Agriculture and Fisheries’ food packaging control is not satisfactory. The ministry’s organisation of the control is inadequate as is the way in which it is conducted. This entails a risk that consumers are exposed to unnecessary health risk and that the companies are not adequately sanctioned.  

Rigsrevisionen initiated the study in June 2023.
