Product Overview

Every item of EU food product labelling will need to meet new standards by December 2014, when Reg. 1169/2011 comes fully into force. This Regulation focuses on providing consumers with factual information which allows informed choices to be made about the composition and nutritional value of the product being purchased. It also prescribes the presentation style for mandatory information.

This report is specifically designed to guide you through the various steps involved and help you both interpret and implement Reg. 1169/2011 as the date of full implementation approaches.

Among the major changes covered are:

  • A prescribed minimum font size for mandatory information
  • Mandatory nutritional Information, in a changed format
  • FoP Nutrition - voluntary, but if provided then to a prescribed format
  • Change from Guideline Daily Amount (GDA) to Reference Intake (RI) for nutrient intake
  • Ingredients – country of origin now mandatory for vegetable oil
  • Additive category names must be shown
  • Allergens must be highlighted in Ingredients listing
  • ‘Contains’ boxes to be banned
