Seaweed usage in Europe has been minor but interest towards its consumption is increasing. Also the European Commission (EC) has recognized macroalgae as important marine resource with potential as food and feed (European Commission, 2017). The use of macroalgae as food and feed in the European Union (EU) is under regulation by the EU food and feed legislation. This report summarizes the EU policy framework that regulates the use of macroalgae as food and feed in the EU member countries.
