Description:
The current rules on food labelling were first introduced in 1979 and while they were amended and consolidated over the years, market conditions, eating habits and consumer expectations have changed considerably since their publication. Work on a major revision of the rules began in the European Union (EU) some time ago and culminated in the publication in the EU Official Journal on 22nd November, 2011 of Regulation No (EU) 1169/20111 on the provision of food information to consumers. This new Regulation which replaces the current rules, sets out the requirements for the provision of food information to the consumer as well as setting out the requirements with regard to the provision of nutrition information on foodstuffs. The Regulation came into effect on 13th December, 2011. It will apply from 13th December, 2014, with the exception of point (l) of Article 9(1) (mandatory nutrition declaration), which will apply from 13th December, 2016, and Part B of Annex VI (specific requirements regarding the designation of minced meat), which will apply from 1st January, 2014. This new Regulation maintains the original objectives and the core components of the current labelling legislation, but does introduce some new requirements in order to ensure easier compliance and greater clarity for stakeholders, as well as modernising the legislation to take account of new developments in the field of food information. The purpose of this document is to highlight the new elements of the Regulation. It should be noted however, that many of those elements require implementing rules to be published by the EU or may require guidance from the EU Commission. This document will be updated to take account of any such publication or guidance from the Commission.
