Codex Labelling Committee kicks off today with Front of Pack Labelling

This week’s meeting of the Codex Committee on Food Labelling (CCFL) started today in Asuncion, Paraguay, coinciding with the World Food Day 2017.

Following the discussion on draft labelling provisions on a number of Codex standards on the agenda, it is expected that the CCFL will address already today the proposal to work on Front of Pack Labelling.

Other proposals, with impact over food and beverages, which will be discussed during the rest of the week, include the work on consumer preference claims, alcoholic beverages labelling, advertising, internet sales or e-commerce, among other issues.
