The National Food Administration, NFA, is the central supervisory authority for matters relating to food, including drinking-water.

The NFA has the task of protecting the interests of the consumer by working for safe food of good  quality, fair practices in the food trade, and healthy eating habits. Fair practices in the food trade imply that the consumer can rely on the labelling as regards, for example, the composition, weight, keeping qualities and origin of the food. The NFA is directly responsible to the government.
