Changes regarding legibility, allergens, nutritional information and product origins are certainly the trickiest part of the new INCO regulation,” said Jean-Christophe Calmejane, Vice President of Lascom Solutions. “We’re dedicated to helping our customers meet the challenge of this new regulation with state-of-the-art features that help minimize any disruption to their business.”

One of the guiding principles is to make labeling compulsory on each packed and unpacked food product. All food products are impacted in retail store as well as food service businesses:

  • Packed products e.g. a yogurt
  • Unpacked products e.g. a slice of pizza to go
  • Deli or loose products e.g. French salami slices or raw almonds

Food and Beverage companies impacted are:

  • Food and Beverage manufacturers
  • All retailers (local and large)
  • Food service and vending machines; Requirements on information on allergens also cover non pre-packed foods including those sold in restaurants and cafés
