«The Codex Alimentarius is a set of internationally accepted standards for raw and processed foods presented in a uniform manner. These standards are designed to protect consumers' health and ensure fairness of the international food trade. The Code helps to increase the level of harmonization for the development of international trade and plays an important role in resolving trade disputes. The Codex Alimentarius includes provisions in respect of food hygiene, food additives, residues of pesticides and veterinary drugs, contaminants, labelling and presentation, methods of analysis and sampling, and import and export inspection and certification,» said Kazakhstan’s Vice-Minister of Health Lyazzat Aktayeva.

The Codex Alimentarius, or «Food Code» is a collection of standards, guidelines and codes of practice adopted by the Codex Alimentarius Commission. The Commission, also known as CAC, is the central part of the Joint FAO/WHO Food Standards Program and was established by FAO and WHO to protect consumer health and promote fair practices in food trade. It held its first meeting in 1963.
