SFDA nutrition forum

The Saudi Food and Drug Authority in collaboration with the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands hold a professionals forum on healthy food, nutrition and quality. The forum will be held Monday 25 February 2019 at the SFDA premises in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

HFHL will fly in two of its professionals from the Netherlands to speak on elements of building towards a healthier society through fresh produce, and healthy food choices, education, reformulation and labeling.

 

The Saudi Food and Drug Authority (SFDA) was established under the Council of Ministers resolution no (1) dated 07/01/1424 H, as an independent body corporate that directly reports to The President of Council of Ministers. The main purpose of the SFDA establishment is to regulate, oversee, and control food, drug, medical devices, as well as to set mandatory standard specifications thereof, whether they are imported or locally manufactured. Recently SFDA launched a Strategy of Regulating Healthy Food, under the Patronage of His Excellency the Minister of health, Chairman, Board of Directors Dr. Tawfiq bin Fawzan Al-Rabieh. The Strategy of Regulating Healthy Food, consistent with Saudi Vision 2030, aims to reduce the levels of sugar, salt and saturated and transformed fat in food products. It raises the awareness and adaptation of the food products manufacturers and importers to reduce these contents and include the calories levels in restaurants and cafes’ menus to determine the daily consumption per capita, daily calories intake by conducting a national nutrition survey to identify the nutritional status of the community.
