Case Study

Codex Committee on Food Hygiene

Continued Partnership

For the past 10 years, VIVA Creative has partnered with The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) to produce their annual meeting, Codex Committee on Food Hygiene. The Codex Alimentarius, or “Food Code,” is a collection of standards, guidelines and codes of practice that governments may opt to use to ensure food safety, quality and fair trade. Needless to say, this gathering is extremely important to the health of literally millions of people.

Coming Together

Each year, delegates from 60 different countries, across several organizations, travel to a different host city. In 2019, 250 delegates came together in Cleveland, Ohio to help draft the globally recognized framework on food hygiene for the coming year.

How do you say 'success'?

VIVA provides language translation services for some of the largest organizations in the United States. That includes the USDA. To ensure the international audience was comfortable and able to fully participate, VIVA was responsible for ensuring the entire event was translated into English, Spanish, and French. The 2019 Codex Committee on Food Hygiene was another successful partnership between the USDA and VIVA Creative.
