While the Philippine Food and Beverage industry is indeed promising, the recent developments in the legislative and regulatory framework prove to have direct and huge impact to the F&B industry performance. In this regard, the European Chamber of Commerce of the Philippines (ECCP) proposes the following recommendations: (1) enforce the provisions of the Ease of Doing Business and Efficient Government Service Delivery Act (EODB-EGSDA) for agencies that require authorization for F&B business; (2) further enhance legislative and regulatory measures on food safety; (3) re-visit the proposed measures on alcoholic beverages and improve its fiscal environment; (4) strengthen further the enforcement of anti-smuggling measures and improvement of the National Single Window (NSW); (5) strengthen protection of geographical indications; and (6) re-establish the regular dialogue between the FDA and the private sector.
The ECCP Food and Beverage Committee regularly joins the FDA’s Kapihan Sessions.
