Since food additives are consumed through processed foods, food additives are strictly supervised and required to undergo various safety tests before being placed on the market in many countries.
In South Korea, the Ministry of Food and Drug (MFDS) regulates food additive through a well-established safety management mechanism. However, complex regulations and language barriers make it difficult for many foreign companies to learn compliance requirements and enter the Korean market. To help overseas enterprises have a better understanding of Korea’s food additive requirements, ChemLinked invited Jihyun Kim, regulatory specialist from REACH 24H Korea. She will provide a comprehensive understanding of Korea's food additive regulations, including the classification of food additives, approval of new food additives, and recently revised regulations.
