Product labelling and packaging

Product labelling and packaging


The objective of foodstuff labelling is to guarantee that consumers have access to complete information on the content and composition of products, in order to protect their health and their interests. Other information may provide details on a particular aspect of the product, such as its origin or production method. Some foodstuffs, such as genetically modified organisms, allergenic foods, foods intended for infants or even various beverages, are also subject to specific regulations.

Labelling of certain non-food products must also contain particular information, in order to guarantee their safe use and allow consumers to exercise real choice. In addition, the packaging of foodstuffs must adhere to production criteria in order to avoid contaminating food products.

Product Labeling

The label and packaging on products you create and/or sell are forms of advertising. The claims make on product packaging must comply with some basic truth-in packaging and labeling rules. These claims include descriptions of ingredients, package size and volume, and discount or lower price labeling. Under the Fair Packaging and Labeling Act (FPLA), the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issue regulations requiring all consumer commodities be labeled to disclose net contents, identity of the product, and name and place of business of the product's manufacturer, packer, or distributor.
