Exceptions to the information requirements for foodstuffs

Switzerland

Jun 21, 2022

The Federal Food Safety and Veterinary Office (FSVO) published draft revision of the Ordinance on foodstuffs and utility articles (revision of elements of this ordinance) and Ordinance of the Federal Department of Home Affairs (FDHA) laying down exceptions to the information requirements for foodstuffs due to the situation in Ukraine (new ordinance).

The supply with sunflower oil and lecithine produced out of sunflower oil from Ukraine is coming to a sudden halt. These ingredients need to be replaced with other oils and lecithines in very short period of time. Consequently, the final products would no longer be labelled correctly. Alternative ways to label the products to inform consumers of the change of ingredients are introduced. This facilitating measure is limited in duration from July 15 2022 to December 31 2023.
