Thai FDA has introduced four new laws governing food labeling which will enter into force on July 2nd, 2024. The laws aim to promote and provide consumers with protection of their health for certain types of food. Some of these laws focus on regulating health claims made on food products, while others mandate that food labels provide detailed information on the nutritional content of various food items. This includes disclosing the type and quantity of nutrients derived from each food type, as well as allowing for easy comparison of nutrient levels between similar products. Additionally, Thai FDA also introduced new requirement regarding labelling of supplementary food. These measures aim to empower consumers to make informed decisions when purchasing and consuming food, thereby enhancing their overall health and nutrition.
