Product Labeling: Challenge and opportunity for you business
Product labeling is subject to complex legislations which differ from one country to another. For instance, in the US, there is the Nutritional Facts Label with rules set by the FDA, whereas in Europe labels must comply with the INCO regulation.
Food and beverage manufacturers and retailers are constantly challenged by these regulations and must ensure their products are regulatory-compliant at any time.
It can become difficult to gather all the necessary product information, stay up-to-date with the latest legislations, and ensure every product label is compliant. Moreover, having a large product portfolio and/or renewing several products on a regular-basis add complexity to these challenges.
An open communication with suppliers is also important as information about the ingredients and products should always be available and updated.
Therefore, it is clear that having to comply with several regulations, regarding labels, can be cumbersome. However, companies can also use product labeling as an advertisement to make their products more attractive for consumers.
