Why BLL?

The BLL – competent and efficient
BLL members profit from their membership in many ways.

The association
  • provides fast, expert information about all aspects of food;
  • gives its members an active role in the work of its specialised committees – and thus in its work as an opinion-shaper;
  • provides support and concrete assistance in solving problems and dealing with issues pertaining to food law and food science;
  • represents its members’ interests as a respected discussion partner for governments and law-makers, at the national, European and international levels;
  • supports its members as a reliable partner in times of crisis;
  • holds events, and provides information and publications on current topics.

The BLL is an independent association, financed solely through its members’ contributions. As a result, the BLL’s positions are always based on its members’ standpoints. This makes the BLL a powerful, effective representative of the German food sector – of the complete chain “from farm to fork“ –, both in Germany and at the European level.
