Information disclosure and food labeling regulations in Tunisia

Most countries do require comprehensive nutrition guides on packaged food. While in Tunisia and with reference to law n° 66 of August 6, 1982, regarding standardization and quality, adding nutrition facts to prepackaged food products is non-mandatory. This policy has remained unchangeable for 39 years. We conducted a qualitative study to highlight the importance of labeling food products and explore their effects on health and eating habits, in order to encourage policy change.
