Draft standard considered by the Codex Alimentarius Commission
in first reading and now referred to Governments for detailed comments
DRAFT GRADING STANDARDS FOR COCOA BEANS
Prepared by the FAO Cocoa Study Group
N O T E
As reported to the Commission, the Working Party on Cocoa Grading of the FAO Cocoa Study Group planned to hold its Second Session in Paris from 2 to 6 July 1963.
At this meeting, the Working Party substantially revised the draft model ordinance and grading standards submitted to the Commission and made various recommendations for consideration by interested countries before they could be sent to Governments for final acceptance.
In order to avoid overlap, therefore, the Secretariat has omitted these texts from the present Report. When revised by the Working Party they will be re-submitted to the Commission.
Attention is drawn in particular to paragraphs 9, 22, 23 and 24 of the Report of this Second Session of the Working Party (reference GWP/15 of 6 July 1963) which will shortly be distributed to Governments.
