History of FSMA

By | Cosmetic and Food Regulations | No Comments

At first, food was hunted for but as societies developed people bought from a nearby market and after the industrial revolution and a new form of living people had to buy their food in impersonal superstores where there were aisles and aisles of food from all over the country and all over the world.

People at the time of trading and local markets certainly did not think to wonder about what it was they were eating because they trusted the people they bought the food from.

INCO changes

By | Cosmetic and Food Regulations | No Comments

Last December, the new E.U. n°1169/2011 regulation, commonly referred to as INCO (Information to Consumers), was put in place to enhance food labeling. The regulation has already led to significant changes in what consumers know about the food they buy.

Food fraud is estimated to cost the world economy $48 billion annually and the University of Minnesota National Center for Food Protection and Defense has approximated that about 10 % of US food could be adulterated.

By | Cosmetic and Food Regulations | No Comments

multi regulation

It could be
extremely difficult to deal with various countries regulations when selling
globally. Even if norms and certifications tend to be international (ISO,
HACCP, OHSAS…) the majority of rules are still country specific. For example if
a Spanish company would like to expand into the USA, they would have to adapt
labeling, conform to US protocols, legal requirements, and specific regulations
about health and sanitary issues.
