Labelling food products



Food labels provide useful information to inform and protect consumers. A food label must be clear and easy to see, read and understand. It must be difficult to remove and must not be misleading. It should show certain basic information and list the ingredients. You might also have to show certain warnings.

This guide explains the legal requirements for food labels. This includes the rules on food allergen and nutritional labelling.

Under the Windsor Framework, EU food law, including marketing standards, continues to apply to all food produced in Northern Ireland.
