The European Community's (EC) 1992 programme is designed to achieve an area without internal frontiers. If nontariff barriers threaten to restrict trade in processed foodstuffs, the EC has two complementary strategies to pursue. Food law harmonisation, to the extent required to ensure food safety, is one. The principle of mutual recognition is the second. The potential impact of mutual recognition on food manufacturers and consumers is reviewed. Mutual recognition, while striking down barriers to trade, does not create a single market. The EC is likely to resort to more, not less, harmonisation of food law in future years. © 1993 John Wiley & Sons, Inc.
