Japanese Food Label Validation
We ensure the mandatory food labeling requirements have been properly interpreted and applied in the label or the design of the food package that you have.
Our experienced staff will review your current JAPANESE labels (label artwork) based on the product specifications submitted, and determine if the food product intended to be sold in Japan meets Japanese regulatory requirements.
Just to give some examples of food labeling regulations in Japan, specific requirements for the use of food additives and statements made on the label vary depending on the product name (name of food). We will first confirm the product name you wish to use, and determine whether or not any changes to food ingredients/additives used in the product will be required.
As for allergen labeling, specified ingredients (allergens) required on food labels in Japan are different from other countries. We will advise whether or not your product contains any specified ingredients, and ensure compliance with regulations.
Having your product labels reviewed for regulatory compliance will shorten the detention period of the product at any ports of entry into Japan.
