The Americas – Argentina: Front-end labeling law to be enforced between August and September

The Secretary of Access to Health, Sandra Tirado, confirmed this Wednesday that the front labeling law will start to be applied “between August and September” and explained that the products will have “a black seal, octagonal in shape, with white letters, very clear and visible”.

The official assured that the articles that will appear on the shelves with the black label will be those of large industries because Law 27.642 on Promotion of Healthy Food was regulated in March and this group has up to 6 months to adapt while the small and medium industry has 1 year for its adaptation.
