Dominican Republic – Draft law on nutritional information on food products

The Chamber of Deputies is considering a bill to place nutritional information labels on certain foods that could cause non-communicable diseases such as obesity.
The bill was presented by the deputy of the People’s Force, Lourdes Serulle, who reintroduced it after failing in the last legislature.
The labels would be placed on all industrial and manufactured products and the Ministry of Public Health would be the entity in charge.
