Impact of Brexit on Food Labelling 

Food labelling changes postponed until 1 October 2022 for foods sold in Great Britain; Northern Ireland will continue to follow the EU rules for food labelling.

Since 1 January 2021, if you import food from Great Britain you will need to comply with the requirements for placing imported food on the Irish market. Here are some notes on questions that food businesses have asked us here at the Label Craft factory in Ireland. 

For any advice on labelling or manufacturing needs please contact our friendly customer service team @


EU Distributor Information

If your product is being distributed in the European Union, you may need an EU Distribution address listed on the product, label or packaging. You also won’t be able to use ‘Made in EU’ or EU flags without permission.

Products of Animal Origin

Products of Animal Origin which are sourced in the UK will no longer be able to use the ‘EC’ reference code within the Product of Animal Origin oval, instead requiring ‘UK’ ‘GB’ or ‘United Kingdom’.

CE Conformity Markings

Products sold on the UK cannot only have the European Union CE symbol. This has been replaced with the new UKCA logo, and UKNI logo for goods that are being sold in Northern Ireland, to indicate conformity to standards.

Thank you sincerely to all our customers for your support during these restricted times, we are so appreciative of your business and are here to support you in getting your product labels and cartons manufactured and delivered it the same high standard we have had in practice over the last 35 years in business.
