Brazilian food regulation framework _
Drop us a line _
Brazilian food regulation is a complex framework composed of laws, decrees, instructions, norms, resolutions and manuals issued by tens of institutions of three administrative spheres. These instruments establish obligations for food labelling, as well as - in some cases - restrain what kinds of sayings and images may be used. In addition to its natural complexity, the following factors contribute to hinder the task of adapt labels of processed food targeted to the Brazilian market:
Regulation is not consolidated;
Regulation is in its wide majority available only in Portuguese;
Regulation is permanently reviewed and modified;
There are overlap areas with more than one agency regulating the same issue.
