The changing world of food labelling regulations: Japanese standard labelling
White paper discussing the influence of the EU Food Information to Consumer Regulation and introducing the new Standard Labelling in Japan.
The Food Information to Consumer Regulation (FICR) has rocked the EU labelling world. Its impact is being felt far beyond Europe, as many countries follow suit by introducing similar nutrition and allergen labelling legislation. In this white paper, Mariko Kubo introduces the new standard labelling in Japan and demonstrates that while countries may begin with similar regulatory objectives to inform consumers, it doesn’t follow that the final format of the product label will look the same.
