What Are Export Labelling Services and Why Might You Need Them?

October 31, 2021

When exporting UK food and drink products to countries around the world, those wishing to sell these products in local markets need to factor in the labels. For instance, English food labels in Arabic countries aren’t always well received.

But there are other specific aspects to the labels that need to be looked at by exporters. These include the stringency of the country’s policies regarding food safety, standards of quality control, standards of production and so on.

But even if these factors don’t directly impinge on an organisation’s ability to sell food and drink products from the UK, there may still be a need for a labelling (or relabelling) service, as we shall now explain.

Why Might You Need Labelling Services When Exporting Food and Drink Products?

There are several reasons why you will likely invest in these export services when selling British food and drink products in your local and national territories. First and foremost, there will be legal requirements to display vital information (such as ingredients or nutritional information) in the language of the country in which you intend to sell the products.

However, other legal requirements, such as provenance and expiry date information, might need to be displayed in the local language before being considered a saleable product.

Thus, no matter where you might be located, it’s wise to check the regulations regarding the information that you must legally display on food (and drink) packaging to ensure that you can seamlessly sell your ordered products in your country.

If your country does stipulate language requirements, this is where you would enlist the help of a specialist relabelling or export labelling and translation company such as Leverbrook Export to take care of this vital task for you.

Other Scenarios Where Companies May Require Relabelling for Exported Goods

While there are plenty of stipulations that may require you to legally translate UK food and drink labels into another language, sometimes you might want to relabel your products for different reasons.

For instance, Leverbrook Export has developed a popular range of items under our own Granny Speak label that we can relabel with your own custom branding to sell within your chosen markets.
