Front-of-package warning labels

Law 2120, commonly referred to as the “junk food law,” will require front-of-package warning labels to appear on ultra-processed foods and beverages that exceed the maximum content of sodium, sugar, saturated fats, trans fats, or artificial sweeteners set by the Colombian Ministry of Health and Social Protection. The Ministry has one year from the law’s passage to determine these nutritional criteria and other details of the regulation.
