Food Labelling Compliance

We help food and beverage businesses launch compliant products globally.

What is Food Labelling Compliance?

Food labelling compliance is the process of ensuring any information displayed on a product label, online listing, or marketing material, is accurate, complete and compliant in accordance with the regulations of the market it is sold in.

Achieving compliance is complicated and can be a real resource drain for brands and retailers. There are new rules and legislation to keep up with and a seemingly infinite library of regulations and guidance to adhere to; not to mention consumer expectations to meet.

This is where Ashbury can help. We provide end-to-end food labelling compliance services globally, enabling your team to prioritise safety and quality, while we ensure that your product information meets regulatory standards.

The Importance of Food Labelling Compliance

Consumer Protection:

Food labelling compliance is ultimately about protecting consumers by empowering them to make informed decisions about what they eat, aligned with their personal dietary needs. This is particularly important for vulnerable consumers, such as those with allergies or diabetes.

Brand Protection:

By complying with labelling requirements you can demonstrate the integrity of your product, reducing the risk of costly enforcement action and threat to your brand reputation. This is essential for successful growth and expansion into new vendors or markets of sale. Proper labelling compliance processes also support brand consistency through internal company policies that govern a business's approach to the presentation of product information.

At Ashbury, we support you in maintaining comprehensive compliance. Our holistic approach goes beyond legal compliance; we implement your brand's internal policies to develop and maintain labelling consistency and help organisations identify efficiencies to improve the overall performance of their product development process.

What is a Food Labelling Compliance Partnership?

Ashbury works in compliance partnerships with leading retailers and brands. This means we work as an extension of their internal teams, to manage the complexities of product and labelling compliance from specification through to final artwork.

We specialise in multi-category and multi-national compliance services, helping businesses handle fluctuating volumes, innovate in new categories and countries, and deliver compliant products to market efficiently.

Through collaboration with technical teams, our support enables a focus on core business objectives rather than administrative tasks. Engagement with marketing, nutrition and product development teams ensures the feasibility of ingredients and marketing claims right from the start of development.

We work within your PLM/ERP systems and develop a critical path that enables you to maintain visibility and control and is integrated with your way of working.

Our partnership framework includes robust reporting against agreed Key Performance Indicators such as turn-around time, quality and budget. Additionally, we provide your business with data intelligence to identify supplier vulnerabilities and areas for continuous improvement in the product information approval process.

Our Food Labelling Compliance Services

Have you got a question about a regulation or are you unsure what regulations matter to your products? Ashbury consultants can advise you on any topic relating to food labelling regulations in over 80 markets globally.

The ingredients in your product directly impact whether your label will be compliant. We can work with you from the development stage to ensure your product can be legally sold in the intended markets from a compositional perspective.

Compliant information starts with a robust specification, however, diverse systems and tight deadlines can make it hard to build complete, accurate and compliant specs.  Our team can write and validate specs on your behalf, laying a strong foundation for your labelling process.

Your pack copy contains all of the key information that consumers need to know about what's inside. Our team will work with you to ensure a fully compliant pack copy for streamlined artwork creation across your markets of sale.

The artwork on your product labels and packaging needs to strike a balance between presenting compliant product information and communicating your brand messaging. We'll review your artwork to ensure it meets legal requirements, taking your marketing ambitions into account and providing risk-based advice.

Navigating the diverse labelling legislation of each country, territory, and jurisdiction can be a daunting task. Ashbury provide regulatory adaptation and translation services to help you achieve global compliance.

A streamlined compliance process is key to preventing wastage of resources and identifying potential vulnerabilities. We help you develop efficient, airtight processes that ensure smooth operations.

Learn how to craft labels that meet legal requirements and deliver commercial success. Our Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) training shows you how to maximise the functionalities of PLM systems to streamline your operations and achieve optimal results.
