The Codex Alimentarius Commission has reached a significant milestone, as 2023 marks 60 years of its establishment. Created jointly by the FAO and the World Health Organization (WHO), Codex is one of the most important international organization in the field of food standards. Over the years, Codex has developed hundreds of internationally recognized standards, guidelines, and codes of practice, all with the goal of ensuring that food is safe for everyone, everywhere.
The Secretary General of the International Seed Federation and Chair of the International Agri-food Network, Michael Keller, has guest-written a blog highlighting the importance of Codex Alimentarius this year, which marks its 60th anniversary.
