This Food Labelling training course has been designed by food industry experts to help food businesses understand how to label their food products legally and correctly.

The overall aim of the Food Labelling Regulations is to ensure that customers can make informed choices in relation to the food they consume, as well as to prevent any practices that may mislead the consumer. This course explains each of the food labelling requirements under the Food Information Regulations 2014 and FIC Regulations. This course also provides information on what can and cannot be said in relation to nutritional claims and health claims, explains the importance of allergen labelling and outlines the reserved descriptions and composition standards for specific food products.
