Codex publishes standard for the labeling of non-retail food packages


May 23, 2023

In 2022 the Codex Secretariat began work on reviewing the formatting and layout of Codex texts to ensure consistency, to meet FAO and international publishing standards and to enhance readability. A digital object identifier (DOI) has also been added to standards as they are published, providing a unique reference that can support tracking and citation of each text. The project is part of the Codex Secretariat’s contribution to the celebration of the 60th anniversary of the Codex Alimentarius Commission.

The General standard for the labelling of non-retail containers of foods (CXS 346-2021) was the first text on food labelling to undergo this process and on Tuesday 16 May 2023, during the current session of the Codex Committee on Food Labelling, taking place in Gatineau, Canada the text was presented to the team that led the work; India, Canada, Costa Rica and the United States of America.
