Food Labelling

It is an offence to falsely describe, advertise or present food and we help enforce the laws that protect consumers against dishonest labelling and mis-description by test purchasing and monitoring goods available throughout the Bedford Borough Council area. Further information is available by contacting us.

What is required on packaging?

  • name of the food
  • list of Ingredients
  • storage Instructions
  • best before/use by
  • name and address
  • nutritional information
  • quantity
  • quantitative ingredients declarations (QUID)

 

There are certain special requirements if the product:

  • has any "special claims" (e.g., "Rich in Vitamins");
  • is alcoholic;
  • is genetically modified;
  • is organic;
  • may trigger certain food allergies.
