PLOS Blogs’ “Global Health”: Cracking the Codex: the new frontier for nutrition labelling
Alexandra Jones, global health lawyer and PhD candidate at the George Institute for Global Health and the University of Sydney; Anne Marie Thow, senior lecturer in health policy at the University of Sydney; and Carmen Huckel Schneider, senior lecturer in health policy at the University of Sydney, and co-lead of the Health Governance and Financing Group and the Menzies Centre for Health Policy, discuss the Codex Alimentarius Commission, a “U.N. body created by the WHO and U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization, [with] a dual mandate: to protect consumer health and promote fair trade practices.” The authors provide a link to a briefing note they wrote, titled, “Public health nutrition and front of pack nutrition labelling at Codex” (6/25).
