Contaminants Committee celebrates 60 years of Codex


Each Codex Committee meeting in 2023 is being invited to mark the occasion of the 60th anniversary of the Codex Alimentarius Commission.

Following events earlier this year in Fiji, the United States of America, Germany and China, on Monday 17 April 2023, the Codex Committee on Contaminants in Foods (CCCF) welcomed delegates attending the session to a reception at the meeting venue in Utrecht, Netherlands (Kingdom of the ).

Sally Hoffer, Chairperson, in recalling the history and work of the Committee said that although CCCF was holding only its sixteenth meeting, the Committee, previously known as the Codex Committee on Food Additives and Contaminants, had in fact been active since 1964 and, nearly as old as Codex itself, would therefore mark its own anniversary in 2024.
