Food labelling

Guidance from the Food Standards Agency

The Food Standards Agency provides comprehensive guidance on clear and concise food labelling.

Legislation requires product information on food labels to be easily visible and clearly legible. Despite this, Food Standards Agency research and public consultations over several years have confirmed that many consumers find food labels difficult to use.

As such, the Food Standards Agency also provides guidance on labelling.
