    Healthier Choice Logo (HCL) is only available in 4 ASEAN countries: Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand and Brunei.

     

    Currently, Cookies are not allowed to apply for Healthier Choice Logo in Thailand. However, cookies will be added as one of the food category by end of this year.

     

    Below are the food categories that are eligible to apply for HCL in Thailand:
