Food Label Review

Testing for Quality & Safety

What is food label review?

A food label is your way of communicating important product information directly with a customer. As well as helping with branding and advertising, it 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 nutritional labels are listed according to the ingredients of the product. We assess and review according to food labelling requirements, including ingredients, allergen declarations, nutrition facts, country of origin and other mandatory requirements.

Why is food label review important?

Regulatory authorities have put in place food labelling regulations and requirements to protect consumers. If you fail to meet these 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 check and ensuring that your food packaging labels meet global and local regulatory standards is vitally important to your business.

Consumers rely on product labels to make informed food choices. With an incorrectly labelled product, it 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.
