LE STATUT JURIDIQUE DE L'ALIMENTATION EN DROIT COMMUNAUTAIRE - DROIT DE L'ALIMENTATION

Abstract : A dual approach of the food sector -- based on distinguishing between agricultural products and foodstuffs -- has long time prevailed in Community law. Therefore, products which aimed at carrying out a common function -- feeding -- have been regulated on distinct legal bases, which led to reaching different objectives and implementing different legislative procedures.
This approach has, obviously, been questioned since the beginning of the crisis of the mad cow's disease in March 1996. Although this crisis seemed at first glance, to be conjunctural, it had, among other consequences, a great impact on how to apprehend the food sector and led to a new approach of its legal status.
Being largely reorganised, this status tends to become the framework of a coherent action, since it recognises the food chain concept and develops instruments suited for risk management. Moreover, the food-security goal now leads all the Community's action which is based on the principles of precaution and prevention. There should be a full articulation between these new orientations and the requirements in the multilateral agreements signed under the control of the WTO. These new orientations also tend to acknowledge the right to the protection of Health and to information granted to consumers. Should one go further and grand them with a fundamental right to security ?
