Staying abreast of the constantly evolving regulatory framework and the varied pre-market prerequisites for the food, dietary supplement, packaging, and animal feed sectors poses significant challenges. These challenges are further amplified when a product falls into multiple regulatory categories across different regions.
International Compliance Services for the importation or exportation of food, food supplements, baby foods, food for special medical purposes and animal feed products
Formulating an effective regulatory strategy is crucial for determining the most efficient path to market, whether seeking approval in a single market or on an international scale. A well-crafted regulatory strategy delineates the scientific and technical data requirements for each target market, identifies any existing data deficiencies that must be addressed before submission, takes into account approval timelines, and outlines the optimal approach to ensure timely and successful product approvals. Our comprehensive services aim to simplify this process, allowing you to confidently expand your business across international borders while ensuring full compliance with legislative requirements.

In Greece, several ministries are in charge of food issues, namely the Ministry of Rural Development & Food, the Ministry of Health, and the Ministry of Economy & Development.
However, food safety and consumer protection are the primary responsibility of the Food Control Authority (“ΕΦΕΤ”), which is supervised by the Ministry of Rural Development & Food and appointed as the contact point for the European food authorities and the Codex Alimentarius Commission. We undertake the liaison with Competent Authorities.
