New European labelling for fishery and aquaculture products


The end of 2014 saw major developments for the food industry in the European Union. As of 13 December, distributors and suppliers must provide consumers with certain information on products derived from fisheries and aquaculture. This is set forth in Chapter IV of Regulation 1379/2013 of the European Parliament and Council.

According to Article 35, the labelling on this type of products must show the following mandatory information:

  • Designation of the species and its scientific name;
  • Production method;
  • Area of capture or breeding of the product and category of the fishing equipment used;
  • Whether or not the product has been unfrozen;
  • The minimum use-by date, where indicated.

Hypermarkets and other large-scale outlets must be able to provide all this information to the consumer before sale of the fish products takes place. This means that suppliers and distributors must keep their databases permanently updated in order to ensure reliability of information.

The challenge of Regulation 1379 is not the only one faced by the European food sector in recent months. On 14 December, Regulation 1169/2011 also came into force, making it mandatory to display nutritional information on the vast majority of food items, even if the sale is made remotely or online. This legislation is designed to increase transparency and food safety, with the aim of promoting a healthier and more balanced diet.


How to comply with European legislation on labelling issues?

To deal with the challenge of synchronizing nutritional information between suppliers and distributors, EDICOM has developed the EDICOMData e-catalogue (data pool). The solution, which operates in international networks GS1 Source and GDSN, enables users to exchange product information in real time.

This makes it possible to comply with regulations 1379 and 1169 easily. In addition, EDICOMData structures the information that suppliers provide to the distributors, so that it may be viewed directly by the consumers of the products before making the purchase in the retailers' e-commerce stores.
