Important News: New UK front of pack labelling standard
Here it is, the news we have all been waiting for, the UK government has finally released details on the consistent all encompassing front-of-pack label.
The new label is seemingly a hybrid of the traffic lights system and the GDA calculations but with the added information of number of servings and energy in kilojoules (kJ) also included.
All the major supermarkets and many of the major manufacturers have already signed up the new system and so our users at alacalc.co.uk should do too.
We at alacalc.co.uk are now working hard on building the new graphic into our service. We anticipate that the new design will be built and tested within a few short weeks for all our customers to start using.
Please keep an eye here on our blog for news on when this update will be live and ready to use.
