Food Safety can be understood from many points of views: from the State\'s obligation to create a legal environment for the production, import and inspection of health safety food to the contents of the individual, even exceeding the legally laid limits or added substances in food. While the first aspect is given by law and therefore is easily controllable, the second is more subjective, poorly clearly verifiable and is part of continuing discussions, both professional and lay public.If the all requirements for the production, distribution and sale are fulfil in accordance to legislative, food in market can be considered such as health and safety food.
From 1st May 2004 The Czech Republic became an equal member of the European Union which has led to the adoption of all rules of this Community. One of the basic obligations enshrined in the Treaty establishing the European Community is to guarantee a high level of health protection and strengthen consumer protection.
