Precise and easy-to-understand food labelling
Food packaging should have simple labelling allowing consumers to choose and purchase the products they want. Labelling must never mislead consumers and must always be in accordance with legislation-specific standards.
EUSERE provides checking services for food manufacturers, marketers, importers and exporters. Label precision is important to consumers and required by law. Labelling should provide correct information regarding characteristics, composition, nature, quantity, origin and foodstuff manufacturing or production methods.
Precise and good food labelling:
- Supports marketing
- Gives added value to customers, e.g. simple labelling of ingredients and nutritional values facilitate the reading of food product information
- Reduces costs when labelling is done right the first time
- Increases customer trust to food product quality
- Reduces the number of customer complaints
- Reduces food control needs and therefore reduces control costs
Packaging label requirements changed
The national and EU regulations oversee packaged and unpackaged foodstuff labelling and the new EU Food Information Regulation, set forth in December 2014, requires that the provided information must be even more accurate. In regards to nutritional labelling, the transitional period expired on 13.12.2016. The purpose of the new regulations is to provide a clearer picture to consumers and the entire food chain, of which ingredients are used as well as any nutrients and any potential allergens they contain.
