Label assessments and checks

When a food or beverage product comes to market, it’s important to ensure that its labelling is descriptive and attractive to the consumer whilst also adhering to the relevant regulatory guidelines. Leatherhead’s multilingual team of regulatory experts can guide you through the complexities of food labelling legislation world-wide, navigating the subtle differences between regions and states.

Leatherhead offers comprehensive label assessments and specific artwork checks on individual labels, covering more than 20 different languages and meeting the regulatory requirements of over 100 territories.
