Podcast: EU Novel Foods and New Brazilian Fruits

The Novel Foods Directive is being revised which could see new and unusual exotic fruits introduced into the European Union.

There are changes on the horizon – the Novel Foods Directive is being revised. This could see new and unusual exotic fruits introduced into the European Union, and we caught up with Dr John Wilkinson and Kesia Trench, two researchers who have identified ten ‘new’ fruits that are likely to be considered novel foods in the EU—the potential tip of the iceberg of the thousands of new exotic botanicals that could be available to Europeans in the future. Plus, Kesia shares her tips on the best way to enjoy avocados! You can learn more about botanicals in the March edition of our Digital Magazine, The Increasing Complexity of Small Plant Life.
