Regulatory Services in Mexico


The Mexican nutraceutical and dietary supplement markets are rapidly growing due to the rising health concerns, changing lifestyle of consumers, and increasing awareness regarding the consumption of healthy foods. The demand for fortified meals and beverages, such as calcium-enriched food and drinks, vitamins and nutritional supplements, as well as high-fibre, low fat, sugar, cholesterol and sodium products have traced an increasing growth over the years. The Federal Commission for the Protection against Sanitary Risk formally known as (COFEPRIS) is the apex Regulatory body in charge of food regulation in Mexico.

The COFEPRIS is responsibility over all activities related to these products and services: production, distribution, commercialization, imports and exports, advertisement, sales and supply, compliance of food regulation in Mexico etc. Under General Health the law, the Secretariat of Health (SALUD), through its operating arm, COFEPRIS, implements and enforces sanitary regulations to protect the population against health risks. Based on health risks, COFEPRIS determines if food and food products imported into Mexico are subject to an import permit prior to importation.
