Front of Pack Labelling

Clearer, consistent food labelling is essential to help consumers make informed choices about the food they buy. The Scottish Government together with the other UK administrations now has a recommended approach to front of pack labelling – a hybrid label which includes traffic light indicators and reference intakes.

We welcome the willingness of many retailers and food manufacturers to change labelling formats and follow our recommended approach, and encourage those not yet committed to consider whether they too can adopt the hybrid label.
