Codex food additives working group faces the challenge of virtual meetings

Codex

Jun 30, 2021

The Codex Committee on Food Additives (CCFA) traditionally holds a week of working groups before its plenary meeting. These technical sessions ensure that one of the core Codex texts, the General Standard for Food Additives (GFSA) is up-to-date in describing the conditions under which food additives may be used in foods and that the additives provisions of the commodity standards align with it, making the GSFA the single reference point for food additives in the Codex Alimentarius.

The group met virtually for the first time from 21 to 25 June 2021 in a series of sessions organized by the Codex Secretariat in collaboration with the hosts of CCFA, China and those chairing the working group.
