The 43rd Session of the Committee on Nutrition and Foods for Special Dietary Uses will be held in Duesseldorf, Germany on 7 – 10 March 2023. The report adoption will be held virtually on 15 March 2023 at 11:00 – 16:00 (CET).
INFACT USA will be supporting the broader International Baby Food Action Network (IBFAN) comments submitted to the committee on relevant agenda items. Unfortunately, IBFAN’s comments are not in line with the U.S. CODEX office’s comments.
Patti Rundall, the Global Advocacy Spokesperson for IBFAN, notes: “Agenda Item 4 on the revised standard for Follow-up Formulas may well be concluded during this session. IBFAN considers that the standard has too many unresolved areas so should not be approved at this session.” IBFAN comments can be found here.
