COFEPRIS backs Supreme Court ruling on front-end warning labeling


Apr 12, 2024

The Federal Commission for the Protection against Health Risks (COFREPIS in Spanish) supports the decision of the Supreme Court of Justice of the Nation to reiterate the constitutionality of the provisions that regulate the front labeling for prepackaged food and non-alcoholic beverages (amendments to NOM-051-SCFI/SSA1-2010), to indicate products that exceed the maximum limits of energy content, added sugars, saturated fats, sodium, and other critical nutrients and ingredients established by such provisions.

In this sense, the plenary of the Supreme Court of Justice of the Nation determined that front nutrition labeling fulfills a constitutionally valid purpose by inhibiting or discouraging the consumption of certain foods to avoid chronic non-communicable diseases as well as to protect the right to health of the population.
