Nutritional Information Solutions
NIS supports food producers in the UK with nutritional label information, simply and inexpensively from product recipe information. NIS launched from the Institute of Food Research, which has maintained the nutritional food ingredient data for the UK government for more than 40 years. As experts in nutrition information we have developed the service in consultation with Trading Standards.
Our service to meet the new regulations.
The service offers personal support in developing the right compliant information for your product’s nutritional label, just from your product recipe. This becomes compulsory in 2016. Only small food producers supplying very locally (ie. without national website sales), are exempt from the new laws (see the new label info. required below).
Why you need to comply.
Consumer research indicates around 60% of consumers now read food labels. Growing consumer mistrust, is increasingly likely to exist, where your food products do not contain full nutritional information. More than 60% of product is already correctly labelled across larger UK retailers. Regional independent retailers will increasingly demand compliance with the new legislation and consumer trend, making it essential food producers plan early for possible label and packaging obsolescence costs.
At only £25 plus VAT per product we believe we are the least expensive solution, to enable food producers to comply with the new regulations. We also offer a discount to ToA members.
