The Healthy Caribbean Coalition (HCC) was granted Observer Status in the Codex Alimentarius Commission (CAC).
The standard-development work of the organisation is carried out across various technical committees. The HCC is a regional alliance of civil society organisations working towards the prevention and control of chronic noncommunicable diseases (NCDs).
Maisha Hutton, executive director at the HCC noted that the Codex Committees of greatest interest to HCC at the moment are the two dealing with nutrition and labelling, respectively. She noted that the CAC had recently adopted guidelines on Front-of-Pack Nutrition Labelling (FOPNL) at its last session in October 2021.
