Translating Food Labels

Compliance with Local Regulations
When exporting food products to foreign markets, it is crucial to ensure that all aspects, including labeling, packaging, and documentation, comply with local regulations and standards. This often includes ensuring accurate translation of labels and documents.
In the case of Canada, the bilingual country mandates that all food labels must be presented in both English and French. This requirement is enforced by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA), and adherence to it is mandatory. The French used in Canada, particularly in Quebec, has its own unique characteristics and differences from European French. Therefore, it’s essential to use translations that accurately reflect French Canadian usage.
For sales in Europe, the regulations are laid out by the European Union, primarily in EU Regulation (EU) No 1169/2011. This regulation pertains to the provision of food information to consumers, and it stipulates many requirements, such as nutritional information, allergen labeling, and certain mandatory particulars. Your translations should adhere to these regulations.
When we undertake the task of translating food labels, we take all these aspects into account. Our team is well versed in both Canadian and EU regulations and possesses the linguistic skills required to provide translations that are not only accurate but also fully compliant with local regulations and norms.
However, it’s worth noting that regulations and standards can change over time, and it’s important to stay updated with these changes. We monitor such changes closely to ensure that the translations we provide continue to comply with current standards.
