State Efforts to Tighten Food Regulations Take Shape

22 March 2013

ARGENTINA – Food safety and traceability regulations for the Entre Rios region are gathering momentum, according to the National Animal Health and Quality Service who spoke with regional officials this week.

During their meeting the officials fleshed out vital food safety regulations to include in draft legislation to regulate the precautions taken at all milk processing and delivery stages.

The regulations, still up for debate, will stipulate how dairy products are handled and recalled when falling short of food standards upon inspection or failure of the Good Manufacturing Practices.

Food transportation rules are also included, as is a food traceability scheme for refrigerated products.
