Abstract

The Regulations concern the sale of food supplements which are sold as food and presented as such. A food supplement is defined as a food sold in dose form whose purpose is to supplement the normal diet and which is a concentrated source of a vitamin or mineral or other substance with a nutritional or physiological effect, alone or in combination (reg. 2(1)). They Regulations: (a) prohibit the sale of a food supplement to the ultimate consumer unless it is prepacked; (b) prohibit the sale of a food supplement in the manufacture of which a vitamin or mineral has been used, unless certain compositional requirements are met, subject to a transitional provision; (c) prohibit the sale of a food supplement which is ready for delivery to the ultimate consumer or a catering establishment unless certain requirements as to labelling, presentation and advertising of the product are met.
