Vietnam recently introduced a new regulation covering the production of food additives in the market. All existing regulations have now been abolished and consolidated under this new single regulation. It is crucial for food manufacturers and distributors to understand how this latest ruling can affect their business operations in Vietnam.
Food products produced or imported in Vietnam must comply with the provisions of the Law on Food Safety. The law outlines the roles and responsibilities of a trading entity to ensure absolute food safety throughout the supply chain. Additives used in food production must now meet the new national standard.
The regulation exemplifies the Vietnam government’s aim to develop a stronger national food safety regulatory system. If your product is not specified in the list, you should consult local authorities or reach out to an experienced regulatory consultant like DKSH who can ensure compliance for your product.
