EU Food legislation is scattered and complex. It is indeed often difficult to determine the type of regulation applicable to a specific food product. Similarly, it is sometimes necessary to define the product in question, in order to see whether it will be considered, by the authorities, as (i) a food product; (ii) a pharmaceutical product or (iii) a cosmetic product. We help companies understand the legal qualification of the products they intend to bring on the market. Whenever relevant, we help them within the process related to the placing of their products on the EU market.
