We have all seen them thousands of times, whether we are driving behind them, walking on the pavement or through a car park, the advertising stickers on the front or back of a car. Car dealerships have had them on cars for years and also the British Legion Poppy Appeal now supplies them for the car owner to display on their car to show that they are supporting the appeal.
Many foods require to be kept at a temperature that ensures that they remain fresh and in good condition. The dairy cabinet in the local supermarket has some of the goods that need temperature control, usually this will not cause the retailer any problem, no it is the cold chain or logistics of getting the food from the factory to the supermarket that can be a cause of concern.
It is appearing just about everywhere now and it would seen on most of the products that we buy and a few more besides, we are talking about the QR code.
We are all familiar at seeing a barcode printed onto a product label, which is used at the point of sale or portable scanner to either identify the product, read the price, aid stocktaking and inventory tracking amongst a variety of uses.

It can be quite daunting if you have to wade through the many rules and regulations placed on consumer products; this applies to just about every business most of which has their own requirements. Labelling rules vary according to the product and its components; for example cosmetics and body care products are labelled differently than food or a pharmaceutical product, which is pretty obvious of course. Naturally, products and clothing for children are labelled differently than those for adults. Manufactured items, such as home appliances or gardening products, may require warnings about gases, chemicals or dangerous components.
As a responsible food supplier or grower, you will, we are certain, be well aware of the requirements that are needed on a food or drink product label, but it is worth running through the main points.
It’s interesting to listen to a person when they are asked what the definition of a label is; the answers usually take the form of something that is stuck to a bottle. Well of course it very often is, but it is much more than that of course.
If it has been decided to introduce a new product, maybe give a facelift or slightly change the formula of an existing one, the all important label is that first thing that your customer will see on the shelf or display counter. Labels provide a wealth of information, it is usually the way your product is seen by the potential customer, and it has to tell them what it is and how to use it as well as giving other vital information.
You are walking along a supermarket and looking at the array of products on the shelves, what do you see and what catches your eye? It could be a particular brand name, or familiar colour on the label, what is a reasonable assumption is that it will be an eye catching design, even if it is a brand that you are looking for, manufacturers do like to ring the changes, whilst at the same time keeping their image and familiar logo.
