On 9 June 2022, the European Union (EU) held a working group on international food and agricultural question and Codex Alimentarius. This meeting was a follow-up to the Council conclusions on the participation of the European Union in the Codex Alimentarius adopted by the EU’s agriculture ministers on 21 February 2022.
This meeting marked the return to face-to-face exchanges in Brussels between delegates of the EU Member States, the General Secretariat of the Council and the European Commission, after two years of remote meetings. This initiative of the French Presidency, accompanied by a moment of preliminary conviviality, was welcomed by all the participants happy to meet again or get to know each other.
The agenda addressed the operationalisation of the Council Conclusions on the mobilisation of EU resources towards Codex, a review of the 32nd session of the CCEURO in May 2022 and discussions on current issues in the Codex Alimentarius in view of the next Codex Alimentarius Commission scheduled for November 2022.
