Producing food and Barcodes

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

Producing food and Barcodes

Post by Dankman » Sat Mar 02, 2019 1:43 pm

I used to make Peanut Butter here and was told that is now the law to have a registered Cambodian Barcode if selling perishable foods.

Who else has experienced this ?

I see a certain Pickle man here is in denial and will no doubt face hefty fines when the authorities find out he has products on the shelves without registering with the Cambodian Chamber of Commerce....Not to mention he doesn't have a permit to work.

What a silly Pickleman.
