Delegates representing the spice and herb sectors in over 20 countries are currently in Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala, to discuss draft Codex Alimentarius Commission standards for select spices and herbs. The objectives of the deliberations are to eliminate trade barriers and strengthen the food supply chains with safe food.

In his address at the opening ceremony, Subhash Vasu, chairman, Spices Board, said, “Through the work of the Codex Alimentarius Commission, progress is being made in gaining a better understanding of the real hurdles in the spice sector.”

M Saravana of the Ministry of Commerce and Industry, Government of India, told delegates that Codex was one of the most successful examples of reviving multilateralism in the global trading system.

“The committee has already developed worldwide standards for black, white and green pepper, cumin and thyme, and the meeting will be an opportunity to address the concerns of developing countries in the production and trade of spices and culinary herbs,” he added.

Topics under discussion at the meeting included standards for oregano, basil, ginger, garlic, chilli pepper and paprika, nutmeg, saffron and cloves.

The committee was founded in 2013 to develop and expand worldwide standards for spices and culinary herbs. India is the host country and the Spices Board of India serves as the Secretariat for organising the sessions of the committee.
