Food Legislation - Declarations and Labelling Check

Legislation regarding labelling of pre-packed food products is constantly changing.

At DTI we keep updated on the most recent changes, and are always ready to advise you and your company. Take advantage of our 360° Labelling Check before printing packaging and labels to make sure that the labelling of your pre-packaged food products complies with current legislation.

Furthermore, different supermarket chains may have specific demands for their suppliers with regard to labelling structure and whether food products need to be analysed before reaching the shelves. These demands usually lie beyond the legislative demands. We take these specific demands into account when performing our 360° Labelling Check. We also evaluate results of the analyses performed at accredited laboratories.
