Branch Associations

There are 14 industry branch associations operating in Finnish Food and Drink Industries´ Federation (ETL). They represent different sectors of the food industry and ETL’s member companies operating in them.

The branch associations monitor the development of legislation and participate in the formation of positions regarding their own sector. The branch associations are members of European sector-specific organizations that influence the development of EU-level legislation in their own industries.
