New regulations set by the authorities concerned at the Ministries of Agriculture and Economy and Trade have made it mandatory to indicate, among other information, the importer’s name and address on imported food packages.
The required information must be written in either Arabic, English, or French, as per the requirements listed in Common Decision no. 1/1 of 2018. Needless to say, this comes as a necessary step to ensure that the imported goods are not counterfeits.
Importers in Lebanon have until May 1, 2018 to comply with this new regulation.
