Description

The compendium presents the results of the 2020 APEC Survey on Packaging and Labelling on Pre-packaged Food Products – an update to 2015 survey which incorporated new areas of interest such as latest trends and developments on packaging and labelling technologies on top of mapping out relevant laws and regulations on pre-packaged food products. It also contains the discussions and presentations made during the APEC Conference on Pre-packaged Food Packaging and Labelling that was held on 17-18 November 2021 with the objectives of (a) providing an interactive forum for economies to share their laws and regulations on packaging and labelling; (b) informing APEC economies about the international standards and international standardization activities relating to packaging and labelling; and (d) providing a platform for economies to showcase the latest trends and developments on packaging and labeling technologies, including sustainable and eco-friendly packaging and labeling options (such as smart labels), for pre-packaged food.
