Regulatory Services in the Saudi Arabia


The Saudi Arabian nutraceuticals or food market is largely dominated by functional foods. Baby foods and milk formulas are the largest segments in demand under functional foods. The Saudi Food and Drug Authority (SFDA) is the Saudi government agency responsible for establishing regulations and compliance standards for concerning food, unprocessed, and processed animal feed products.

Vitamins and dietary supplements along with functional foods became the key segment in controlling lifestyle diseases. Nutraceutical segments have been positioned as natural as well as healthy alternatives to traditional medicine. For SFDA food registration, the executive department for local markets controls electronic services, which is designed to build a database for all food establishments & operators and food items in the KSA.
