Food Supplements Regulatory Support in Saudi Arabia


The Saudi Arabian nutraceuticals/food market is largely dominated by functional foods. Baby foods and milk formulas are the largest segments in demand under functional foods. The Saudi Food and Drug Authority (SFDA) is the Saudi Government agency responsible for establishing regulations and standards for compliance concerning food, unprocessed and processed animal feed products.

Vitamins and dietary supplements, along with functional foods, became the key segment in controlling lifestyle diseases. Nutraceutical segments have been positioned as natural and as a healthy alternative to traditional medicine. For SFDA food registration, the Executive Department for Local Markets Control Electronic Services is designed to build a database for all the food establishments & operators and food items in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA). The e-services include new account creation, food establishment registration, and food items registration.
