The international food code of Codex Alimentarius: will it affect your business?

Dr Robert Verkerk, Alliance for Natural Health International

The internet abounds with conflicting information on the way in which the standards, guidelines and recommendations issued by the international, intergovernmental food standards setting body, the Codex Alimentarius Commission, will ‘knee-cap’ the health food and natural products sectors. Based on his deep insights and experience with the process, Dr Robert Verkerk will bring to light the real concerns and challenges facing both the organic and natural products sectors as a result of both what is being done—and not being done—by Codex. He will also clarify some of parallels and disparities between Codex and the raft of EU laws affecting natural products. This seminar is essential fodder for those concerned about the bigger picture and future challenges facing the organic and natural products sectors.
