Mandatory nutritional labelling of food.

Please be informed that, on August 29, 2018, the Uruguayan government signed a decree regarding the mandatory nutritional labelling of food, when these exceed certain values ​​of sodium, sugars and fats.

Article 2 of the decree states that "food packaged in the absence of the customer, ready to offer to consumers in the national territory, for which the regulation requires nutritional labeling, must include a label on its front face, provided that in its process of elaboration or in one of its ingredients, sodium, sugars or fats has been added and in whose final composition the content of sodium, sugars, fats or saturated fats exceeds the values ​​established in this decree ".

Medicinal foods, weight control diets, dietary and sports supplements, formulas for infants and children up to three years old and tabletop sweeteners are exempted from these regulations.

The labeling shall consist of symbols with an octagonal design, black background and white border, containing the words "EXCESS FATS", "EXCESS SATURATED FATS", "EXCESS SODIUM", "EXCESS SUGARS", as appropriate.

The above mentioned decree gives manufacturers, importers and fractionators 18 months to adapt to the new regulations.
