6. Packaging

6.2 Labelling and batch number

The batch number on the packaging is significant for the traceability of the products. It is also useful to us in dealing properly with any complaints.

The batch number is a nine-digit code, containing codings for a number of different items:

Position 1 and 2 - Internal number
Position 3 - Year
Position 4 and 5 - Production week number
Position 6, 7, 8 and 9 - Serial number (sequence of production)

Labels on packages intended for BtoB are only required by the Food Standards legislation to state the batch number, for traceability purposes.
The sector have decided that all products should be packaged in accordance with the guidance for packaged finished products.

This means that the following information can be found on each label:

  • Batch number
  • Name of the product and product description
  • List of ingredients (in descending order)
  • Net quantity
  • Minimal storability date (dd-mm-yyyy)
  • Instructions on storage and dosage
  • Information on the manufacturer or seller
  • Quantity of specified ingredients (in line with Kwid).
  • A sentence referring to the product information sheet for information on allergens and other information.

Consumer packaging is labelled in accordance with the Food Standards legislation for labelling of foodstuffs and nutritional value.

Since 2009 al the above information is printed in 4 languages on the label. By the Multilanguage label it is possible to, in established language combinations, to use 27 languages.
