Brazil – New nutrition labeling regulations take effect in 30 days

There are 30 days left for the new food labeling regulations to come into force. As of October 9, 2022, products launched on the market will already have to have labels that comply with the new rules.

For products already on the market, there are different adaptation deadlines (see timeline below). Among the main changes is the adoption of front-of-pack nutrition labeling, in addition to changes in the table of nutrition information and claims.

The labeling changes were established by Resolution of the Collegiate Directive Council (RDC) 429 and Normative Instruction (IN) 75, published in October 2020. The objective of the standards is to improve the clarity and legibility of food labels and, in doing so, help consumers make more conscious food choices.
