Meeting to discuss strategic food safety priorities

Codex

Oct 14, 2022

The Chairperson Jing TIAN, China, encourages all Member Countries in the region attending the meeting, “to actively participate and to discuss issues of mutual interest, confirm the regional priorities and activities under the framework of the Codex Strategic Plan 2020-2025 and promote the harmonization of regional standards”.

The proposals for these standards include soybean products fermented with Bacillus species. Natto, Cheonggukjang and Thua Nao will be covered by the standard and the basic ingredients for these products are soybeans, potable water and Bacillus species.

A second proposed standard is for cooked rice wrapped in plant leaves. This consists of rice with various fillings, wrapped in bamboo, reed or other plant leaves and cooked by steaming or boiling.

A third proposed standard is for quick frozen dumplings. Typically crescent-shaped and formed with a wrapper, they can have a variety of fillings, and are served with a dipping sauce.

By specifying product definition and quality requirements, all these regional standards can help protect consumer health and ensure fair trade practices in Asia.
