Herbal ingredients have been used in food and medicines and in cosmetic and domestic products since time immemorial. Hundreds
of years on, they are still used for similar purposes but each product type now has its own distinct and particular legislative framework and rules.
Herbal product market analyses all point to growth with just one sector alone, the global market for ‘herbal supplements and remedies’, being projected to exceed US$140 billion by 2024 – with Europe the largest market worldwide and China a close second.
This practical course will help you to maximise your success in this expanding market by providing you with a clear understanding of the contrasting regulatory structures and legal requirements for the various categories of herbal products.
