Brazil: Nutrition labeling: new rules to take effect in 75 days

The new rules for food labeling come into force on October 9, 2022. In addition to changes to the table of nutrition information and claims, the novelty will be the adoption of front-of-pack nutrition labeling.

Front-of-pack nutrition labeling

Considered the major innovation of the new regulation, front-of-pack nutrition labeling is an informative symbol that must appear on the front panel of the package. The idea is to clarify to the consumer, in a clear and simple way, the high content of health-relevant nutrients.
