Herbal Supplements to Rise

February 1, 2008: 12:00 AM EST
A significant increase is expected in food supplement sales other than vitamins and minerals in the European Union by 2010. The sector made up 43 percent of the market in 2005. Regulations for the use of herbs and other bioactive substances have still to be made uniform across the EU, although the European Food Safety Authority has drafted a document on the safety assessment of botanicals. Manufacturers trying to get into specific countries can seek recourse in the EU's principle of mutual recognition (free movement of goods). This principle has some force following a court victory in Germany.
