NOVEL FOODS: A Pivotal Milestone for the UK’s ACI

The Association for the Cannabinoid Industry (ACI) is the UK’s membership organization for businesses committed to nurturing a safe, legal and flourishing commercial cannabis extract market. “Novel foods” are defined as foods that have limited consumption history in the UK prior to May 1997. These foods do not have an established safety profile and therefore must be evaluated on toxicological, chemical, microbiological and stability parameters, prior to market approval and sale to the general public.
