Haiti spat: UN says local product meet world standards
Santo Domingo.- The recent dispute over Haiti’s bans on Tuesday prompted UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) local representative to affirm that Dominican Republic’s products meet international agro-sanitary requirements and export standards.
Gero Vaagt said international markets have conditions and quality criteria, which all countries must comply with to export.
He said the FAO, along with the World Health Organization (WHO), uses the Codex Alimentarius to classify food quality and basic amount through sanitary regulations, just as it does with animals. “Dominican Republic, in exports, is meeting sanitary requirements, which are the main base that must be complied with, and those are the international rules.”
