What is food label review?

A food product label is your way of communicating important product information directly with a customer. As well as helping with branding and advertising, food nutrition labelling provides the customer with basic product information, nutritional information and safety information.

A food label review gives food manufacturers and producers confidence that the food nutrition labels are listed according to the product ingredients. We assess and review according to food labelling requirements, including ingredients, allergen declarations, nutrition facts, country of origin and other mandatory requirements.


Regulatory authorities have put in place food labelling regulations and requirements to protect consumers. If you fail to meet these food nutrition label testing standards or provide either misleading or false representations on any of your food labels, you may potentially leave your business reputation at risk.

Conducting a thorough and accurate food label compliance review ensures that your food packaging labels meet global and local regulatory standards, which are vitally important to your business.

Consumers rely on product labels to make informed food choices. An incorrectly labelled product may cause significant health problems for a customer, such as allergies. As a result, your food nutrition labelling must be highly accurate and subject to a regular food label check.
