food law

We advise you in the entire area of food law which as before is at the focus of public and political discussion. The term “food” covers a number of products, in particular food supplements, dietary or new kinds of foodstuffs.

The complex requirements on the food industry have now been harmonised at the European level in many areas such as, for example by the Regulation (EU) No. 1924/2006 on nutritional value and health-related information on foodstuffs (Health claims regulation) or the Regulation (EU) No. 1925/2006 (Enrichment regulation). In particular the subject area “advertising and advertising restrictions” for food and the implementation of the health claims regulation in practice lead to considerable uncertainties and increased requirements on advertising statements and risk strategies
