2023 has been a challenging and dynamic year for the global food industry in terms of regulatory advancements and enforcement. Governments and international organizations have introduced new policies and regulations to ensure food safety, quality, and transparency. From novel food approvals and labelling requirements to updates in food contact materials and additive regulations, businesses operating in the global food market have faced evolving compliance challenges and opportunities.

In particular, South Korea and Japan, as participants in shaping the global food industry in 2023, have been driving the improvement of their respective food regulatory systems in various aspects such as food ingredients, additives, labelling, and more. Among them, South Korea implemented the new use-by-date labelling requirement, which aims to reduce food waste. Besides, the requirements related to meat alternatives are released. Japan officially releases the Positive List for food utensils, containers, and packaging, and makes multiple adjustments to the list and regulations regarding additives.
