EU 1169/2011 is a regulation about the information that must be provided to consumers about food products. It replaces both the nutrition labelling directive (90/496/EEC) and the food labelling directive (2000/13/EC).
The regulation aims to make sure that consumers can make informed food buying decisions at the point-of-sale by giving them product information about quality, nutritional value, ingredients and, sometimes, country of origin. This product information must be visible online as well as in-store.
