Argentina: Companies request extension to comply with the new front-of-pack nutrition labelling

The first deadline for compliance with the law on Front Food Labeling is August 20, but there are already requests for an extension.
Among the largest food factories in Argentina there were requests to extend the “ultimatum”. The factories of ultra-processed and industrialized foods in general, which are the only ones “touched” by the Law, will present their requests in the next few days. They need time not only to “modify the packaging” but also to change the formulation of some products in order to avoid some seals.
COPAL, the business entity that brings together more than 30 chambers of the food and beverage industry, “is generating presentations, given that there are still inconsistencies and uncertainties that make it impossible to comply with the Law”.
