EU Regulatory Challenges

EU Regulatory Challenges

And, of course, expect more regulatory debate and insight, as EU developments continue to change-and threaten-the landscape of the market.

“There are many different regulatory issues affecting the European nutraceutical industry, from the Novel Foods debate to the EU Food Information for Consumers Regulation, each providing a time-consuming and often costly problem to manufacturers,” says Chris Lee, Vitafoods Europe portfolio director.

Of course, no regulatory discussion would be complete talking about EFSA’s Article 13 functional claims regulation, which many feel hinder overall industry innovation.

Vitafoods conferences and resources, including one-on-one sessions, will delve deep into specific regulatory questions, including:

  • The commercial implications of EU regulatory developments

  • How to make food supplement labels compliant for the EU market

  • Novel Foods: History of Use and Chemical Systematics

  • Dissecting EFSA Opinions from a Scientist’s Point of View

  • How to deal with regulations surrounding nanotechnology

Consulting firm EAS Strategic Advice will even offer free, one-on-one consultation sessions to answer visitor-specific questions, and

Leatherhead Food Research will hold master classes on navigating regulations, including the EU Food Information for Consumers regulation.

It’s not surprising that there is so much unfolding, says Lee. “With the global nutraceutical market expected to be worth more than $14 billion by 2015, the industry is a hot bed of dynamism.”
