Dominican Republic – new NORDOM for Nutritional Labeling

The Dominican Institute for Quality (INDOCAL) made available to the public and the national productive sectors a Dominican standard (NORDOM 675) for nutritional labeling, which will help facilitate access to relevant information on products for local consumption, in order to encourage the application of quality nutritional principles in the preparation of food, for the benefit of public health.
NORDOM 675 ensures that nutrition labeling does not present false, misleading, deceptive, or meaningless information about a given product in order to provide an effective means for consumers to make informed purchasing decisions.
