Colombia: Nullity action against Resolution 810 accepted

Dejusticia, a legal and social studies center located in Bogota, announced that the Colombian Council of State admitted a nullity suit against Resolution 810, arguing that the circular labeling for ultra-processed products, which the Ministry of Health seeks to establish, is not based on the best scientific evidence.

In the lawsuit, which was admitted on June 30 by the high court, the organization asked the judges to suspend the Resolution as a precautionary measure to prevent companies from implementing it while they decide.
