Presented by Richard White and Allen Sayler

Can Codex food standards and various food safety, hygiene guidelines and codes of practice positively impact domestic food manufacturers that do not export? The short answer is “YES!”

Codex provides a transparent international platform for food safety and hygiene as well as manufacturing practices, food standards (ranging from dairy products to seafood to pasta), acceptable and unacceptable food additives specific to every food sector, contaminant levels in all foods, etc. Understanding Codex and how to make use of Codex standards, guidelines and codes of practice can benefit every food manufacturing business, whether food products are exported or not.

As you focus on product innovation and the development of new food products, ensure you are aligned with Codex standards, guidelines and codes of practice. This EAS webinar will host two presenters with a combined total of over 60 years of experience working within the Codex and food manufacturing world to share their insights into how the Codex system works and how to make it a benefit for expanding your business strategy. Join EAS independent consultant, Richard White and Senior Director for Food Consulting Services, Allen Sayler, to gain new insights into leveraging Codex to add a new dimension to current and future food business strategies.
