Argentina – Judge rejects business lawsuit and upholds Front End Labeling law

The Court rejected a corporate lawsuit and upheld the Front Labeling law. The ruling of the Federal Contentious Administrative Judge Santiago Carrillo did not uphold a class action brought against the Front Labeling Law 27.642 and its regulatory decree that promotes healthy eating by means of warning seals.

The lawsuit had been filed by the Argentine Chamber of the Industry of Sausages and Allied Products (CAICHA) against the National Government and the Executive Power, in order to declare the unconstitutionality of Law 27,642, Decree 151/2022 and other regulatory rules.
