Colombia: Authorities acknowledge that the front‐of‐pack nutrition labelling model will not be ready on schedule

In the middle of the political control debate to the Minister of Health, Fernando Ruiz, he accepted that it is impossible that the labeling on junk food packages will be ready before December 7 or 16.

This means that the Government would not comply with the law, which regulated that by August 1 of this year the front seals should be implemented on the packages.

“The objective is that before December 17, when Resolution 810 comes into force, we will have this modification. Before, I have to say it clearly, calmly and honestly, it is impossible”, assured Minister Ruiz.
