Over 400 delegates gathered on line for the opening session of the Codex Committee on Food Additives (CCFA), hosted by China and being held virtually from 1 to 10 September 2021.

The efforts of the Codex Secretariat, the hosts themselves and the experts from many different countries who lead specific areas of work in the committee have ensured that despite the global pandemic the 52nd session will have a very busy agenda.

Mr Jinfeng Liu (pictured), speaking on behalf of the Vice Minister of the National Health Commission of China, welcomed participants and underlined the host’s commitment to food safety at the highest level. He highlighted President Xi Jinping’s call for protecting consumer food safety with "the most stringent standards, the most rigorous supervision, the most severe punishment and the most serious accountability".
