Food and Food Supplements
Regulatory Services in Peru


In Peru, the Regulatory framework for food and dietary supplements has been developed by the Peruvian Ministry of Health (MoH). The framework includes registration and labeling requirements, claims, and marketing authorizations. The authorized body responsible for granting marketing authorizations in Peru is the General Directorate of Medicines, Supplies, and Drugs (DIGEMID).

In Peru, food supplements are categorized as both foods and dietary or pharmaceutical products depending on their presentation and health claims.

  • Dietary products that are in the food form and without health claims are regulated by the General Directorate of Environmental Health and Food Safety – DIGESA (Dirección General de Salud Ambiental e Inocuidad Alimentaria). These products are regarded as foods and are regulated accordingly.
  • Dietary supplements in pharmaceutical form (such as pills, tablets, capsules, etc.) and/or with health claims are regulated by the General Directorate of Medicines, Supplies, and Drugs - DIGEMID (Dirección General de Medicamentos, Insumos y Drogas). These products are considered dietary products and are subject to the regulations established for pharmaceuticals.
