EU COURT COMPLICATES LABELING OF MULTIPACKS

EU COURT COMPLICATES LABELING OF MULTIPACKS

In a recent case, the Court of Justice of the EU ruled that each of the individual portions of a food packed in cartons (multipack) constituted a ‘pre-packaged foodstuff’, and therefore, needed to be labelled individually with all the compulsory mandatory information. Including that information on the outer carton packaging was not sufficient to comply with EU labeling rules.
