Press and Public Relations

"More safety for the consumer" – the Administration Department for Press and Public Relations division consider clarification an especially important issue. Factual, understandable, up-to date, conversational and quick – we provide information on the topic of health-related consumer protection and food safety in Lower Saxony.

The media is an important link in the enlightening process: Preparing press conferences, interviews and assisting journalists in acquiring information on the current state of affairs is part of the day-to-day business. Likewise, compiling news items, arranging press conferences and fostering relationships with all media. A comprehensive photo archive is maintained, lending further support to the publishing media. The analysis and evaluation of media articles is, among other things, one of the daily tasks of the Department for Press and Public Relations.

The department coordinates and updates the internet presence and supervises the entire information offered by LAVES in the worldwide web. Current topics are promptly and regularly prepared for internet coverage. Additionally, consumers have the possibility of seeking advice on health-related consumer protection by telephone, e-mail or in writing. Brochures and annual reports are compiled, and can be ordered via the internet.

Furthermore, among other things, lectures on the public relations work of LAVES, e.g. in schools, but also at trade fairs and symposiums, are organised and coordinated.

With “Lower Saxony IN FORM - the portal for nutrition and exercise” a further comprehensive internet offer has been available since 2011. In this portal this department pools important offers on the themes of nutrition, food and exercise.

Since 1 April 2002 spokeswoman Hiltrud Schrandt has been in charge of the department Press and Public Relations at LAVES.
