Demand for food supplements/health functional foods (HFFs) in Germany is growing constantly. Despite a booming market, the actual definition of HFFs and their claims in their region still results to be a concerning factor for new market entrants. To procure marketing approvals, manufacturers must comply with the requirements of the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) and individual Health Authorities (HAs). Without complete knowledge on the Regulatory requirements, the approval process for HFFs in Germany can become challenging which leads to exhaustion of time and resources, and can even affect the ROI.

Our Regulatory team in Europe, assists manufacturers in compiling the documentation as per The Food Supplements Directive (FSD), Directive 2002/46/EC. With a dedicated delivery center in Germany, Freyr caters end-to-end Regulatory support for HFFs for varied compliance needs such as review of labels, claims substantiation, etc.
