EU approves EDA Guidance for ‘Cheese as raw material’

The European Union approves EDA Guidance for ‘Cheese as raw material’ and ASSIFONTE ‘Good Manufacturing Practice Guidelines for Processed Cheese’

“The EDA guidelines for ‘cheese as raw material’ are a concise and state of the art compendium on the high safety and quality of cheese as raw material within the processing industry. These guidelines are completed by the ASSIFONTE ‘Good Manufacturing Guidelines Practice for Processed Cheese’, which set an EU benchmark and a best practice manual for the processed cheese industry. Both guidelines, that will be translated into all 23 official EU languages, underline the global leadership of the EU cheese and processed cheese industry also when it comes to safety and quality”, stated Alexander Anton, secretary general of EDA and of ASSIFONTE.
