Video-Harmonisation of maximum permitted limits of vitamins and minerals in the EU [On-demand webinar]

This presentation provides an overview of the current policy and regulatory landscape of Maximum Permitted Levels of Vitamins and Minerals (MPLs) in Europe, as well as the challenges that the sports and active nutrition industry is facing as a result of the current lack of agreement among member states on MPLs.

As the EU reconsiders setting vitamin and mineral limits, the presentation will also explain the process of introducing EU legislation on MPLs, as well as the implications of a harmonised setting of MPLs at the EU level for the sports and active nutrition sector.
