Why is Label Compliance Important?
Food. Beauty products. Pharmaceuticals. Products that generally are to be used for treatment, consumption, or beautification, need accurate labels.
Why? Because consumers and businesses need to understand key information and safety warnings.
Not only this, but from the EU to Latin America, it is also essential for a product’s labelling to meet the legal requirements of the region it is traded in.
It is your responsibility as an exporter to meet these requirements and ensure your packaging can be comprehensively understood. However, regulations and official languages can vary from country to trading bloc – making things a little complicated.
That’s where we come in. At Wolfestone, our experts can produce a compliant label report to advise you on the necessary steps needed to successfully trade a product in your target market, including packaging translation, desktop publishing, or ingredient changes.
Contact us today for a consultation or a free quote.
Firstly, you can discuss your project requirements with an experienced member of our sales team.
Our process can then vary slightly, depending on what point of the product cycle you are in. You may need initial checks or ingredient reviews, or a final evaluation before exporting.
A compliant labelling expert will produce a report that either greenlights aspects of your label or informs you on what elements may need to be changed or enhanced.
You may need to translate your ingredients list, or perhaps even edit font size depending on whether your desired language constricts or contracts. For example, when translating from English to German, text can expand by up to 35%, so DTP is required.
Ultimately, we will help you do what is needed to successfully export to your target region.
The Benefits of Multilingual Compliant Labelling
Compliant labels and packaging are important as they give consumers and buyers key information they need, and they allow your business to abide by the regulations of a region.
If standards aren’t met, then you simply won’t be able to trade your product in a region. However, successful labelling means successful exporting.
According to the European Commission, the total value of the EU agri-food exports and imports was valued at €268.1 billion between January to October 2021. With top importers including the US, Norway, and Brazil.
If a food exporter successfully enters this market with a food compliance label review, then the potential for growth is immense.
And the same can be said for other products entering the many vibrant and exciting markets found across the globe.
We provide many other language solutions for exporting, including:
Ensure people understand your website and online catalogue with accurate translation and localization.
Text can shrink or expand when translated, meaning edits to fonts and design are often required.
From legal documents to shipping orders, we can ensure your communications transcend borders and language barriers.
