BFSA publishes New Draft Labeling Regulation


Aug 29, 2023

The Bangladesh Food Safety Authority has published the "Draft Food Safety (Labelling of Packaged Food)" Regulation, 2023.

The draft regulation for labelling of packaged food aims at protecting consumers' health and safety by providing them with accurate and essential information about the food products they purchase. The regulations are put in place to ensure that food manufacturers and distributors comply with specific standards when it comes to labelling their products.

The drafting process of the regulation is mainly done by comparing the existing regulation with internationally followed guidelines by CODEX and regulations from India and European Union (EU). The regulations include labelling, general conditions of labelling of packaged food, labelling requirements such as name of the food, list of Ingredients, food additives declaration, quantitative ingredients declaration (QUID), special conditions for labelling of packaged food causing allergies or Intolerances, nutritional information, name and complete address of manufacturer or FBO declaration, country of origin for imported foods, date marking, etc.
