Regulation (EU) No 1169/2011 of 25 October 2011 on the provision of food information to consumers (FIC) establishes the general principles, requirements and responsibilities governing food information, and in particular food labelling, across the EU.

Regulation (EU) No 1169/2011, art 9 provides that all pre-packed foods sold to consumers in packages must contain certain mandatory information including the name or business name and address of the food business operator (FBO), or, if that operator is not established in the EU, the EU importer, and the country or place of provenance (if necessary).

The only mandatory information for non-prepacked food under the FIC is allergen information in accordance with Regulation (EU) No 1169/2011, art
