New packaging rules

FOOD packaging is subject to new directives aimed at improving the quality of Cambodian goods, the Ministry of Commerce (MoC) has announced. According to a report obtained by the Post Sunday, the ministry has issued guidelines in order to define a clear legal responsibility for products on sale to the general public. It wants packages of multiple wares, like those sold together in gift packages, to be labelled with the name and address of a trader. Invoices must also be provided by sellers, the new rules state. “The MoC will observe and control all goods in the Cambodian market in order to strengthen the quality of goods, services and safety. It will protect users from using goods which have expired,” the report stated.
