AAF statement on business to business labelling


AAF members are aware of the requirements of EU Regulation 1333/2008 on food additives.

As concerns the implementation of the provisions of Art 22.1.- General labelling requirements for food additives not intended for sale to the final consumer – AAF members consider that, as far as the products of the starch industry are concerned:

  • Relevant information is exhaustively provided through the indication of the E-number or name and the communication to customers that the concerned additive has to be used in accordance with applicable additive legislation (Regulation 1333/2008), and international food standards;
  • Indication of the additive should be accompanied by a “not for retail sale” statement.
