Some of them make foods maximally cheap, saving on quality. The bill we intend to introduce is aimed at regulation of the relations, connected with participation of the authority in foods quality and security assurance”.

The bill is called to determine the competence of the authority RB in sphere of foods quality and security assurance and offers to establish the commission, responsible for foods quality assurance.
