The Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region proposes, through legislative amendments, to update the regulatory control of preservatives and antioxidants in food, with a view to enhancing protection for consumers, promoting harmonization of local and international food safety standards, and facilitating the food trade. The exercise mainly involves updating the definitions of "preservative" and "antioxidant", the list of permitted preservatives and antioxidants as well as the maximum permitted levels of such permitted preservatives and antioxidants in specified food.
