Together with the growth and development of the European Union, the European Food Law has experienced fundamental modifications. If before the Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy scandal, the food safety legislation was market oriented, nowadays its direction converges to the protection of the consumer. As a result, the actual food safety set of laws bases itself on scientific opinion, together with other factors that the risk manager has to consider when legislating. This paper is depicting the steps taken by the European food legislation until reaching its actual form. It starts with describing the frame in which the European Food Law was approached before its changes, and it continues with presenting the drafts needed to build its present shape. In addition, because the current legislation is founded on the concept of risk analysis, the term will be elaborated both from a general perspective but also with respect to its applications in the food industry field.
