Food labelling legislation has changed substantially, following the introduction of the EU Food Information to Consumers Regulation. Labellers need to be fully aware of these changes and of other laws that relate to particular aspects of food labelling in order to produce legally compliant labels.

This course is designed to give delegates the essential top line requirements of mandatory food and drink labelling for EU Harmonised and UK legislation.
