Label checking starts at £100 + VAT. Label translations depend on the language and number of words. Community members enjoy additional benefits.
To speak to one of the team, complete this form and we will be in touch.
How long does a label check take?
We understand our brands like to work quickly. We will turnaround a label check within five working days. If you need a check urgently, we can turn it around within 48 hours at an additonal cost.
For label translation, this will depend on the word count of your label and the language we are translating the label into.
What information do you need from me for a label check?
For label compliance, we need full ingredient details and descriptions, allergens, nutritional certificate and any other raw material specifications. We may also ask for additional documentation from suppliers.
For translating a label, we will need the label information and file. If you would like us to translate the label and typeset it in the graphic file, we will need the compatible artwork file as well.
When you review the label can you also update the artwork?
Unfortunately, we cannot help you with the design and any graphical changes. We will send you a report of recommends and changes that need to be made. It is then up to you to make any necessary changes.
Can I change the product after the label has been checked?
Once the label has been checked, you must be very careful about making any changes to the product, such as the recipe, manufacturing process or location, as this might deem the label non-compliant again. Please reach out and we will advise on your specific case.
Can you re-check my label?
Yes we certainly can. We are happy to work with you until you are 100% confident.
