, : The urgent need for a number of developing countries to revise legislation on food labelling. (Milk and milk products in Burundi as an example). Bulletin des Seances, Academie Royale des Sciences d' Outre Mer 38(3): 535-541

The urgent need for reform of various aspects of food industry controls in a number of developing countries is discussed, with particular reference to the reform of legislation governing the labelling of food products. Labelling of milk, milk products and infant formulae in Burundi is used as an example. The need to revise the standards for labelling of these products, so that labels give a list of ingredients, the date of manufacture and a 'use-by' date, is discussed.
