TDMR Europe welcomes new member Bariatrix Europe

Posted On: 30th November 2022

TDMR Europe has announced further growth with Bariatrix Europe’s recent addition to its membership. Bariatrix Nutrition is a leading international company that has provided weight management and wellness products in Europe since 2005.

Bariatrix Europe joins TMDR Europe ahead of a series of upcoming regulatory changes in the EU and the UK that may affect its product portfolio, which includes total diet replacements (TDRs) and meal replacement products (MRPs). With its consistent expansion, TDMR Europe is uniting the slimming foods industry to facilitate exchanges of knowledge and effectively utilise on-the-ground information to tackle regulatory challenges for the sector in Europe.

Professor Anthony Leeds, Chairman of TDMR Europe said:

“We’re delighted to see TDMR Europe’s continued expansion with Bariatrix Europe being the latest company to join our association. As a member of TDMR Europe, Bariatrix will contribute to our targeted campaigns aiming to secure a fit for purpose European legislation for formula diet foods and help stakeholders gain a better understanding of these products”.

“We are witnessing major regulatory challenges for the slimming foods industry in Europe. The European Commission has just updated composition requirements for total diet replacements (TDRs) after TDMR Europe shared the latest scientific research on these products with them. We also expect regulatory changes that may unfairly impact slimming foods such as the setting of nutrient profiles and a harmonised front of pack nutrition scheme. TDMR Europe is also actively engaged in discussions in the UK where the regulatory framework for TDRs is being reviewed”.

“TDMR Europe is working to ensure that businesses in the sector can inform the legislation that affects their products, combining the industry’s commercial and technical knowledge with TDMR Europe’s decades of experience in policy engagement”.

Ziad Khoury, Scientific and Marketing Director in Bariatrix Europe said:

Joining TDMR Europe will support our company’s further development and growth. With its scientific expertise, longstanding PR and public affairs experience and the excellent relationships that TDMR Europe has developed with policy makers, target media and other stakeholders in the EU and the UK, the association will help us navigate the fluid and complex legislation governing our products as well as raise awareness of their scientifically proven benefits”.

TDMR Europe is the European association for manufacturers and distributors of total diet replacements (TDRs) and meal replacements (MRPs) which provide weight loss and weight management programmes for people with obesity and overweight. TDMR Europe helps businesses in the sector engage with policymakers, provides members with policy and regulatory advice, and promotes the benefits of TDRs and MRPs for people with obesity and overweight.
