Everything we buy from the market comes with labels. A label is instructions on how to use a product, nutrition information, or just a design to catch the consumer’s attention, each label has its own unique role in the product. Label printing is a process of printing custom labels through various methods.

Food Labels

A food label is a piece of information presented on food products, is one of the most important and direct means of communicating information to the consumer. The internationally accepted definition of a food label is any tag, brand, mark, pictorial, or other descriptive matter, written, printed, stenciled, marked, embossed, or impressed on, or attached to, a container of food or food product. This information, which includes items such as ingredients, quality, and nutritional value, can accompany the food or be displayed near the food to promote its sale.

The following information is provided by the food labels
• Name of the food
• Ingredients inside the food
• Shelf life of the food
• Storage instructions
• Common allergens inside the food
• Information about total fat, saturated fat, trans fat, cholesterol, fiber, and other nutrients.
• Some food labels also state which country the food came from, whether the food is organic, and certain health claims.
• Serving Size

Importance of Food and Beverages Labels

It is legal for all food production companies to display nutritional information since 2016. Customers are more invested than ever before in nutritional information, especially as the number of food-related diseases and health problems is on the rise. Therefore, many people opt for more nutritious alternatives and should be made aware of the nutrition and dietary information of all food items they purchase.

To keep us healthy: Labels help you to understand the composition of your food: its vitamins, minerals, calories, fats, etc. This information is fundamental in ensuring that you are eating the kinds of food that are good for you. With labels, you can monitor your intake of micronutrients to avoid deficiencies, especially common ones like iron and Vitamin D.

To keep us safe: Labels provide warnings and important information about the ways to use a product (for example, storage and cooking instructions), which are necessary for keeping food safe.

Keep you safe from allergens: The most common allergenic foods include peanuts, soybeans, milk, eggs, fish, crustaceans, wheat and tree nuts. If you did not know the ingredients in a product, you could mistakenly eat something that would cause an allergy attack, some of which are very severe. Food labels let you know what to avoid.

Medical conditions: Some medical conditions, such as diabetes, require individuals to know the specific content of certain food components.


Production details might include information on whether the food is:
• Halal
• Kosher
• Organic
• Free range

Many people are invested in how their food is prepared. Whether it be for religious, cultural or ethical reasons, including information about the production methods of your product can help users make informed decisions about which products they would like to consume.

The main importance of the Food and Beverages Label is to protect consumer health in terms of food safety and nutrition. Food labels convey information about the product’s identity and contents, and on how to handle, prepare and consume it safely.

With the increase in global trade and a shift away from the traditional face-to-face food producer and buyer relationship, there is a greater need to create food labels that are clear and can be trusted.
