International regulatory and policy consultancy EAS Strategic Advice will give a presentation on the regulatory opportunities related to ingredients and claims for functional foods and food supplements at this year’s Food Ingredients South America event August 6 to 8 in Brazil.
On August 6, EAS Latin America expert Clara Giudice will present on "Marketing functional foods and food supplements in Latin America: regulatory opportunities on permitted ingredients and related claims" giving companies a vision of the opportunities and challenges across the region regarding their products.
She will give a regional overview of permitted ingredients and related health claims for functional foods and food supplements, addressing the existing harmonised regulations in Latin America, highlight some of the key regulatory developments underway in the region in these areas, and explain the requirements for the scientific substantiation of claims in key markets.
“Participants will receive a regional overview of permitted ingredients and related health claims for functional foods and food supplements, addressing the existing harmonised regulations in Latin America” said Ms. Giudice. “Currently, key regulatory developments are taking place in the region. Considering that regulation requirements are not always clear, elements such as scientific substantiation of claims can be a major challenge for some markets. Therefore, I will address these key points to help attendees navigate the regulatory environment to successfully launch their products,” she continued.
Food Ingredients South America is this year combining its show with Health Ingredients South America. The event is an opportunity to source the latest and most innovative ingredients, grow the business in one of the fastest growing markets and nurture business relationships by meeting with the most important ingredients suppliers and buyers in the region.
