Technical regulations on the "General Principles of Good Food Manufacturing Practices" have been updated.
In December 2013, the Institute of Technical Standards of Costa Rica (Inteco) updated and approved a tool which establishes the controls and requirements for all processes in the food manufacturing chain.
From a press release issued by the Institute of Technical Standards of Costa Rica (Inteco):
The decree which regulates the sale of food within the public schools, forced the food industry in Costa Rica to adapt its product lines.
Businesses in the sector suggest that changes also respond to the global trend towards healthier food consumption, but the Regulations for the Operation and Administration Services of Cafeterias in public schools, in effect since January of last year, force greater dynamism in these changes.
