European Union

Oct 04, 2021

The Natural Food Colours Association (NATCOL) developed a Code of Practice to describe current industry practice and to provide support for the classification, manufacturing, use and labelling of Colouring Foods to producers and users (i.e. food industry) of Colouring Foods on the European Union market (EU), thereby helping to ensure consistency, transparency and harmonisation of practices.

This Code is intended to serve as a Business to Business support tool and must be read in conjunction with the appropriate legislation (listed in the table found in Chapter 3 of this Code), particularly Regulation (EC) No 1333/2008 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 16 December 2008 on food additives, especially Recital 5, Article 3 (2) (a) and Annex I (2) of this Regulation.
