Food labelling and regulations

Food labels are there to give us information on what we are eating. This gives us, as consumers, more choice.

Regulatory Services provides information and enforcement to ensure consumers are not misled by food labelling and are provided with information about food contents and allergies to enable them to make educated choices.

You can make a complaint about a misleading product or request advice on food labelling using our online form. We'll then contact you within three working days.

More information about food labelling is available on the website of the Food Standards Agency.

We've produced a poster showing how you can report incorrect allergy information to us, which can be downloaded and displayed in community locations.
