Labelling of Goods for light manufacturers
Michael Sawyer–manager track 19
What are the standards?/What is required on packages.
pigeon peas&guava jam
not at the moment any requirements
We’ve arleady started dointg some of labels with ingredients
some of the newer products eg guava jam
none of the beans have it yet.
if we join the wto we have to change
not many challenges
send sample of product to lab&they send back information
not locally more competivei … have to comply with new laws.
at the moent trying to do peas at once then kidney beans … that lhts cost 3:20
