Consultation on Front of Pack nutrition labelling

This is a UK-wide consultation on voluntary front of pack (FoP) nutrition labelling.
Start of consultation: 14/05/2012
End of consultation: 06/08/2012

There is currently a high level of voluntary use of FoP labelling across the UK. However, these adopt a variety of formats.

Research indicates that consistent expression and use across as many food products as possible would maximise the impact of labelling and improve consumer ability to choose healthier foods.

Any future approach to achieving consistency will have to take into account the new legal framework for the Provision of Food Information to Consumers as well as:  

  • research into consumer understanding and
  • use of FoP information.

The consultation runs for a period of 12 weeks.
