Labelling of Organic Food & Drink
This information is correct at the time of publishing (12th October 2022).
Get to the information you need:
Please refer to our standards for information on requirements for labelling organic goods. General organic labelling requirements can be found in section 5.8 of our Food and Drink standards.
We recommend you also refer to labelling guidance, which specially details how following Brexit, requirements differ for different destination markets in Europe.
Operators may use up labelling placed on the GB market prior to January 2021 until 31st December 2023. This deadline also applies to other general labelling requirements (not specific to organic), such as pre-packaged food or caseins sold in GB being required to include a UK address for the FBO or importer (not an EU address).
