In Chile, a national debate is brewing among food industries, importers, and consumers.
In June 2016, new health regulations came into force in Chile strictly regulating all food packaging, advertising, and labeling of products classified as “high in” specific nutrients (sugar, sodium, saturated fats, and calories). The packaging of these products must include mandatory warning messages, for example, “high in sugar,” which will appear in a distinctive black Stop sign. Further, the new regulations prohibit advertising products “high in” certain nutrients aimed at children under 14 years old and forbid marketing promotions of any kind, including toys, cartoons, etc., geared toward children.
Trademark owners are deeply concerned about how their IP and trademark rights are being affected by the new health regulations.
