Codex Alimentarius

«Codex Alimentarius» is literally, translated from Latin, a “Food Code”. It consists of a series of generic and specific food safety standards that have been established in order to protect consumers’ health and fai practices in food trade. Food that are in the market for local consumption or exporting should be considered safe to eat and of good quality. Moreover, food should not carry any harmful organisms that could harm animals or plants in the countries that import them.
Although the Standards adopted by the “Code” are not binding, thus they are recognized as totally based on science.
Certification against Codex Alimentarius principles includes the principles of a HACCP study and the application of Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP). The advantage of this kind of certification is the significantly less requirements than of other standards.
