Chile: FAIRS Country Report

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

On June 26, 2015, the Ministry of Health published in the Official Gazette the new regulation for the Nutritional Labeling of Food. The final decree requires, among other things, a label (or labels) on the front of prepackaged food and beverages, in the shape of a stop sign if the item exceeds certain thresholds for saturated fat, calories, sugar, and sodium. One label will be required for each nutrient that exceeds the threshold. Therefore, one product could bear up to four labels covering anywhere from 18 to 42 percent of the package face.
