Codex Alimentarius, meaning 'Food Code', has been developed to facilitate fair trade in food. These international standards are designed to provide protection to consumers health. The main objective of the Samoa National Codex Committee (SNCC) is to ensure that the food Samoa produces, exports and imports, is safe and suitable for all consumers. Find out more
