This webinar will provide an opportunity for countries/organizations which would be attending CCCF14 (May 2021) to have an insight of Codex work on cadmium in chocolates and cocoa-derived products (i.e. cocoa powder) and to hear about the rationale for bringing cadmium to the agenda of JECFA91 and the findings of this evaluation.
