Codex Alimentarius Commission to discuss key food standards in Geneva

The 40th Session of the Codex Alimentarius Commission (CAC40) is meeting this week, 17-22 July, in Geneva to address key issues impacting the food and beverages industry.

The CAC meets once a year to consider the adoption of draft standards and guidelines proposed by the international and regional Codex Committees.

At this year’s session, the CAC agenda not only includes the discussion on key draft standards and guidelines but also the consideration of proposals concerning policy coherence between FAO and WHO policies, strategies and guidelines and the work of Codex.
