The new Regulation (EU) No. 1169/2011 on the provision of food information to consumers, the Food Information Regulation (FIR), recently came into force and established important rules, requirements
and responsibilities regulating food information and in particular food labelling. The FIR replaces all existing general European as well as national legislation on labelling and nutrition declaration. A major new provision is the mandatory nutrition declaration. Which other specifications are compulsory? What rules apply to voluntary declarations? This book is a guide for food business operators as well as lawyers in food law practice who quickly need to identify and solve these problems. The commentary on the FIR will help you to better understand European food labelling law.
