Australian Beverages Council statement on EFSA draft opinion on Caffeine
The Australian Beverages Council, representing the domestic non-alcoholic beverages industry, has today welcomed the release of the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) draft opinion on caffeine.
In conjunction with our members here in Australia, we will review the draft in detail to further inform our understanding of caffeine and caffeine in beverages. Through our affiliates in Europe we will keep abreast of the consultation process over the coming months.
As with opinions from our own Food Standards Australia New Zealand, opinions of EFSA provide an important part of the scientific evidence base to ensure consumers have confidence in the products they purchase.
