THE GRAS SYSTEM IN THE U.S.

For companies looking to enter the thriving U.S. food market, understanding and navigating the GRAS (Generally Recognized as Safe) framework is pivotal.

GRAS is a critical regulatory concept overseen by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), which determines whether a substance is safe for consumption in food and food-related products. Navigating this framework can be complex and time-consuming, but our expertise and guidance can streamline the process.

At AFR we offer comprehensive assistance to help your company understand the intricate requirements of GRAS, from conducting safety assessments to preparing and submitting the necessary documentation for FDA approval. With our support, your business can confidently and efficiently bring new food products to the U.S. market, ensuring both consumer safety and compliance with regulatory standards, all within a timescale shorter than that experienced within the European markets (and often at lower cost).
