Overview of the different labeling and marking requirements, including any restrictive advertising or labeling practices and where to get more information.
In June 2018, the Ministry of Health (MINSA) approved a Warning Label Manual (Supreme Decree 012-2018-SA), which established that warnings regarding packaged foods and beverages had to be on the front of a package and could not be partially or totally covered. The rules put forth in the Manual do not apply to food ingredients. The supreme decree set June 17, 2020, as the original deadline for using stickers to comply. In March 2022, MINSA published Supreme Decree 005-2022-SA, which extends the use of stickers to comply with Peru’s front-of-package nutritional warning label for imported processed food products through December 31, 2022.
