EU Food Allergen Labeling

In the United States, we are quite familiar with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and its involvement in food and drug production. FDA is responsible for “protecting the public health by assuring the safety, efficacy, and security of human and veterinary drugs, biological products, medical devices, the nation’s food supply, cosmetics, and products that emit radiation.” The EU has a similar program under the Food Information to Consumers (FIC) and we will look specifically at how BarTender assisted with EU food allergen labeling.

BarTender’s labeling solutions enable the EU’s FIC labeling requirements to be met with ease, no matter what product a business is packaging and what language its labels are printed in.

Here are some benefits that BarTender provides to make allergen labeling easier:

  • Simple design interface and superior graphics handling
  • Six languages are available as part of the automated allergen database: Dutch, English, French, German, Italian, and Spanish.
  • Every edition provides additional writing characters like Roman, Greek, Cyrillic, Arabic, and Hebrew.
  • The BarTender FIC comes with an editable list of allergens, making it easy to modify and update based on new regulations.

So, whether you need to comply with US FDA standards or EU FIC standards, BarTender has a solution to ensure your labels are accurate and compliant. As a long-standing partner of BarTender, Pragmatyxs can provide support in implementing this solution or addressing any of your labeling needs.
