Is your food labelling legal? #legallabelling

Do you know the difference between ‘gluten-free’ and ‘very low gluten?’ What about ‘legal’ names and ‘customary names’? Does your food packaging clearly state the country of origin? Can your nutrition and health claims be substantiated? Do you know what’s acceptable and legal?

All food manufacturers have a responsibility to ensure that the information printed on their packaging is clear and truthful. Negotiating the intricacies of food labelling legislation can be extremely time-consuming and complex. That’s why we developed our ‘Legal Labelling’ course. It is specifically designed to cut through the jargon and tell you precisely what you need to know in order to comply.

Launched in 2011, this course will appeal to Specification Technologists, Technical Managers, Product Developers, Label Designers and those responsible for approving packaging copy and artwork from a legal perspective.

‘Legal Labelling’ will give you a working knowledge of the legislative requirements for food composition and labelling. It covers product title and brand names,  legal names and customary names, marketing sub-descriptors and claims, additives, allergens, nutrition and health claims, ingredients declarations and QUIDs, origin marking and protected names , date coding and an introduction to the new Food Information Regulations.

The next ‘Legal Labelling’ course takes place on Friday 7th September. To find out more and reserve your place, please contact Claire Lennon on 01756 700802 or email
