Industries Minister Ramiro Gonzalez reported that in the coming days will be formalized the new changes of the Regulation Processed Food Labeling.
The regulations states that must be identified the contents of the food in fat, sugar and salt in a graphical system colors. The red for those with high components, yellow for the media content and green for low.
“The semaphore can go front or back (product),” said Ramiro Gonzalez, about one of the changes, after a dialogue with the productive sector. Another change includes that imported products may place a sticker.
For its part Richard Espinosa, Minister of Production, stated that “At a Duty Free do not need labeling, are products for export and products that are going out are governed by their own standards of other countries.”
