Labelling Food

Regulation (EU) 1169/2011 (see here) establishes the general principles, requirements and responsibilities governing food information, and in particular food labelling. The majority of rules apply as from 13 December 2014. 

FEDIOL developed a Guidance on the labelling requirements for the ingredient listing of vegetable oils and fats as per Regulation (EU) 1169/2011: category name, implications for QUID, hydrogenation. The Guidance is available here.

FEDIOL has prepared a document meant to explain what the rules are for the determination of country of origin under EU law (Regulation (EU) 1169/2011 on food information to consumers together with Customs rules).  The statement is available here.
