Product Relabelling

November 5, 2022

When exporting food and drink from the United Kingdom overseas, you’ll often have to change the labelling to meet the requirements of your destination country.

Known as product relabelling, it’s something that we can help you with here at Leverbrook Export. Not only can we ensure the products arriving to your destination country are fully compliant with local legislation, but we can also take care of label translation, printing, and application.

Why Do You Need to Relabel Exported Food and Drink Products?

Edible products naturally contain more health risks than non-edible products such as consumer electronics or machinery parts. As a result, there are much stricter requirements and regulations in place regarding the labelling of food and drink items.

For instance, those looking to import UK produce into the UAE would need to make sure that information such as the name and address of the manufacturer, list of ingredients, a description of the product, and “use by”dates, and more country-specific details were all included on product labels in Arabic.

Under UK law, there aren’t quite as many requirements for labels, and there’s certainly no obligation to provide everything in Arabic. This is just one example of the many ways in which products need to be changed when they are exported to different countries.

Thus, whether you’re an exporting UK brand or an entity looking to get your hands on some delicious British goods, it’s important that you’re aware of the potential need for product relabelling before anything gets shipped anywhere.

After all, the last thing you want is perishable goods stranded at customs because the labels don’t meet local regulations.
