Nutritional labelling is mandatory now!

We are all used to seeing nutritional labelling on foodstuffs that we pick up from the supermarket. By mid this December it will be mandatory to have it on the majority of prepacked food, including promotional sweets and chocolates. It is important to make sure you are ordering your promotional merchandise through a creditable company that has experience of, and is keeping up with, legislation.

It will be mandatory to declare energy value and the amounts of fat, saturate, carbohydrate, sugar, protein and salt. This information needs to be expressed per 100g / per 100ml of the product. In addition, allergen information also has to be stated. If space permits, the nutrition declaration must be presented in a tabular format with the numbers aligned.
