Food Information Regulation

The labelling of foodstuffs as per Regulation (EU) No 1169/2011 on the provision of food information to consumers had to be implemented by December 2014.

NEW: The food label must highlight allergens

A significant change in the labelling of foodstuffs in accordance with the Food Information to Consumers Regulation concerns allergens: they have to be highlighted in the ingredients list, for example, by bold print, CAPITAL LETTERS or colour. Allergens have to be identified also for unpacked foods, 'bulk ware'.

NEW: More space for the ingredients list

Lists of ingredients will in future require more space, as the Food Information to Consumers Regulation stipulates the x-height, which applies to all mandatory information: small letters such as a, e, o, u and the eponymous x have to be 1.2 mm in height. The lettering may be 25% smaller only on packaging with a largest surface of less than 80 cm2.

NEW: 'Big 7' instead of 'Big 4'

According to the Food Information to Consumers Regulation, a nutrition declaration ('Big 7') will be mandatory for almost all foodstuffs in future. Information about the content of saturated fatty acids, sugar and salt is required in addition to the hitherto permissible small nutrition declaration ('Big 4'). Other information, for example, about dietary fibre content, is optional. After all, dietary fibre has been included in the calorific value calculation since 2009. The transitional period for the nutrition declaration will end in December 2016.

Food labelling – More examples of change at a glance:

  • designation of origin for meat as well as potentially for the primary ingredient
  • date of freezing for certain frozen products
  • the indication 'thawed' for food that has been thawed prior to sale
  • information about the specific origin of vegetable oils and fats in the ingredients list
  • changes in the information about added water for meat and meat preparations

Unresolved issues are clarified in the 59 recitals, seven chapters containing 55 articles and 15 annexes of the Food Information to Consumers Regulation.
