From an email:
Right now, huge numbers of small farms across France which were known worldwide for their cheeses, are gone. The were to sell cheeses their families had profitably sold for generations because they suddenly couldn’t meet the new corporate EU “food safety” standards, (See the PBS show “The Cheese Nun” for a view of this.) Those standards were arranged carefully by corporations specifically to get rid of farmers and S 510 is designed to “harmonize” with those EU laws.
