Calling all kitchen entrepreneurs & small food businesses

Food hygiene is important but what about labelling?

If you produce or label food, make sure you know your obligations. Our Business Companion website can help you understand what needs to be on the label, and how you must describe the composition and quantity of your product:

  • do you know what you have to do if you sell food from outside the UK?
  • what is the difference between a best-before and a use-by date?
  • what colours can be in food?
  • how would you tell customers or purchasers about any potential allergens?

Our 'Food & drink' Quick Guide is the place to get started to find all the answers to the questions above and everything else that you need to know.
