Let's work together and build trust, FSA tells industry
As for the FSA, Dame Hutton set out several challenges it faces:
Firstly, she said that the increasingly complex global food chain presents new challenges for food safety - as does emerging science like nanotechnology, dealing with issued like genetic modification, and day-to-day dealings with bacteria and viruses.
The second related to diet and heath, where the FSA's strategy is around encouraging the industry to produce the right products, informing the public of health messages and giving people information to aid their choice.
"Achieving the right balance as to where responsibilities lie and the appropriate methods for achieving the goals will be a continuing challenge," she said.
Thirdly, the agency faces internal challenges, such as being as efficient and effective as possible in its operation, and reducing the administrative burden of regulation without compromising public health.
