Labelling food products

Nutrition labelling

You must provide a mandatory nutrition declaration for most prepacked foods. This is commonly known as ‘back of pack’ nutrition labelling. You must give the declaration in the following order:

  • energy
  • fat
  • saturates
  • carbohydrate
  • sugars
  • protein
  • salt

Read technical guidance on nutritional labelling and Food Standards Agency (FSA) guidance on food nutrition labelling.

  • monounsaturated fat
  • polyunsaturated fat
  • polyols
  • starch  
  • fibre
  • vitamins and minerals
