What is it all about?

Latin America (LATAM) offers immense potential for food and food supplement companies to introduce their products in the market. LATAM presents a unique set of regulations that govern the safety, labeling, and import/export of food products and supplements. The formation of trade blocs such as MERCOSUR, the Pacific Alliance, COMIECO, and the ANDEAN in LATAM has established common standards for registration, labeling, and advertising, which made it easier for food and supplement companies to operate in multiple countries. In this webinar, our industry experts will provide an overview of the Regulatory requirements and procedures for market entry in key LATAM countries.

To give you a better perspective on the Regulatory landscape of food products and supplements in LATAM region, along with compliance best practices for smooth entry into the region, Freyr brings you a comprehensive webinar on:

  • Regulatory status of foods and supplements in LATAM markets.
  • Harmonization of various trade blocs in LATAM.
  • Competent Health Authorities (HAs) across LATAM.
  • Market entry.
  • Regulatory challenges and solutions.
  • Freyr Regulatory services for LATAM.

Given the keynotes and with due respect to your busy schedule, we look forward to seeing you in the webinar. Register now! Stay informed. Stay compliant.
