Advances in sending food labelling standards for adoption

Codex

Oct 10, 2021

The 46th session of the Codex Committee on Food Labelling (CCFL46), hosted virtually by Canada from Ottawa, concluded on 7 October 2021 sending a new standard for the labelling of non-retail containers and guidelines for front-of-pack nutrition labelling (FOPNL) to the Codex Alimentarius Commission for adoption in November.

The committee began to explore new work on using technology in food labelling, a practice already common with QR codes and websites frequently used to offer supplementary information to consumers. The labelling of alcoholic beverages and the labelling of foods in joint presentation and multipack formats will also be on the future agenda of CCFL. In future meetings, and in light of the conclusions of the UN Food Systems Summit, CCFL will be exploring ways to address sustainability claims, food labelling exemptions in emergencies and trans fatty acids.
