Food labels

Food labels enable the consumer to make an informed choice when choosing their foods. The label cannot be inaccurate, misleading or make false claims.

All food businesses must comply with the food labeling laws, which are enforced in Barnet by the Food Safety and Standards team.

If you have concerns or queries about products sold in Barnet please contact the team using the details below.

The presence of certain ingredients must be clearly stated on the labeling, as they are allergens, for example milk, certain nuts or soybeans. They can be stated in the name of the food or identified by wording such as ‘This food contains the following allergens’. For the full list of allergens contact the Food Safety team or visit the Food Standards Agency.
