Food labelling changes and how we can help you
How the regulations are changing
By March 2020, any establishment in which food and drink is prepared and sold ready for consumption by the final consumer will have to make nutritional information (calorific values) available at point of sale.
What information will I need to display and where?
Calorie information will need to be provided to consumers at the point of choice, for example in an establishment where prices are displayed and customers make their meal choices e.g. menus, shelf-edge labels.
You will need to display calorie labels which show the number of calories in a portion of food, as well as this amount as a proportion of the recommended daily energy intake for an adult woman (2,000 kcal).
