Labelling is regulated to protect consumers who should have the correct information to make confident and informed food choices based on diet, allergies, personal taste or cost.
Everyone has the right to know that the food they have bought matches the description given on the label. Part of our role is to help prevent mislabelling or misleading descriptions of foods.
If mislabelling is done deliberately it is criminal fraud, whether it poses a food safety threat or not.
Falsely describing, advertising or presenting food is an offence and there are many laws that help protect consumers against dishonest labelling and misleading descriptions.
ITA Corp’s legal food labelling experts support the food industry with regulatory labelling requirements compliance.
