GNC Struggles With Costa Rican Government Over Supplement Regulation

The Costa Rica News (TCRN) – GNC, chain stores selling nutritional supplements, may have to close facilities because they argue that the Ministry of Health prevents them from registering products from the United States.

According to a press release sent by the agency’s public relations company, the government entity applies the restrictions “based on an arbitrary and illegal regulation”.

Although they are trying to prevent store closings, Freddy Serrano, member of the public relations firm CNG leaked that the firm might have to close their premises, but he does not specify the number or locations or how many positions work will be affected by this decision.

GNC currently has 32 stores distributed in different parts of the country.
