Towards the development of laws to manage the food supplements market in Algeria
On the sidelines of a national conference on food supplements; the President of the Algerian Federation of Pharmacy (FAP), Professor Abdelhakim Boudis, underlined the need for the drafting of laws to ensure the management and organization of the food supplements market.
During his intervention; the President of the FAP indicated that these products are currently subject to the management of the Ministry of Commerce; while their management must depend on three or four Ministries.
