Manner of marking or labelling

7.—(1) No person shall sell any food supplement which is ready for delivery to the ultimate consumer or is ready for delivery to a catering establishment and is prepacked, unless the particulars with which it is required to be marked or labelled by virtue of regulation 6(2) appear–

(a)on the packaging;

(b)on a label attached to the packaging; or

(c)on a label which is clearly visible through the packaging:

Provided that where the sale is otherwise than to the ultimate consumer such particulars may, alternatively, appear only on the commercial documents relating to the food supplement where it can be guaranteed that such documents, containing all such particulars, either accompany the food supplement to which they relate or were sent before, or at the same time as, delivery of the food supplement, and provided that the particulars required by regulation 5(a), (c) and (e) of the Food Labelling Regulations 1996 are also marked or labelled on the outermost packaging in which that food supplement is sold.

(a)on a label attached to the food supplement;

(b)on a ticket or notice which is readily discernible by the intending purchaser at the place where the purchaser chooses the food supplement; or

(c)in commercial documents relating to the food supplement where it can be guaranteed that such documents either accompany the food supplement to which they relate or were sent before, or at the same time as, delivery of the food supplement.

(3) No person shall sell any food supplement which is ready for delivery to the ultimate consumer or to a catering establishment unless the particulars with which it is required to be marked or labelled by virtue of regulation 6(2) are easy to understand, clearly legible and indelible and, when a food is sold to the ultimate consumer, those particulars are marked in a conspicuous place in such a way as to be easily visible.

(4) No person shall sell any food supplement which is ready for delivery to the ultimate consumer or to a catering establishment if the particulars with which it is required to be marked or labelled by virtue of regulation 6(2) are in any way hidden, obscured or interrupted by any other written or pictorial matter.
