Transparency campaigners have called for a "complete overhaul" of the rules governing the European food safety authority (EFSA).


CEO, a steering committee member of ALTER-EU, spokesperson Olivier Hoedeman: "EFSA's independence cannot be guaranteed if members of its management board are employed by private companies or lobby groups with a vested interest in influencing EU food regulation."
