Recalling products, reprinting labels or a ‘quick fix’ adhesive can be costly to a small businesses. The consequence for supplying consumers with incorrect information can be severe – up to $200 000 fines can be enforced under the Food Act 1984.
You can dodge that bullet.

CUSTOMIZE FOR YOUR BRAND
Are you overwhelmed with creating correct labels for your products?
Calm the farm. Each ‘Basic’ food labelling templates kit is set up in accordance with legal labelling requirements for Australia and New Zealand. In another country? Don’t fear, all elements are easily adjustable for any country.
The Treasure Chest is loaded with goodies to assist you to collect the correct information from barcodes to sodium quantities – it’s all here.
Food and beverage labels need to comply the Food Standards Code FSANZ (Food Standards Australia New Zealand). FSANZ is a bi‐national government agency which develops and administers the Code. The Code is enforced by individual state, territory and New Zealand agencies. Food, beverage and all product labelling is also impacted by the Australian Consumer Law which is enforced by the ACCC in Australia. Your labels need to comply with the Competition and Consumer Act 2010 (CCA). But don’t worry that’s all included in each of the Basic Food Labelling Template Kits.
Got a beauty or wellness product? Fear not. The layouts can also be a guide for pharmaceutical products, which will also need to comply with Therapeutic Goods Administration TGA regulations. You can view the Therapeutic Goods Order No. 92 – Standard for labels of non-prescription medicines here.
All product categories have different requirements. You can easily adjust the templates to suit your product.
MORE THAN A FOOD LABELLING TEMPLATE
RANGE OF LAYOUTS: The basic label kits come with a range of setups. There’s plenty of choice. You might like all the regulatory information on the back. Or on each side. Or just on one side. Or incase you want to use the label to fold over the top of a pouch there is a vertical setup too.
BACKGROUNDS: Each label template is supplied with a plain colour and a photographic background – yes, you get the photo’s too. There are 3 high resolution print ready photo’s in each kit. Use one of these or replace the photo with one of your own.
GUIDES: You also get all the reference guides. These guides help you make the right decisions for your nutritional panel, ingredients lists, label claims, allergens and more.
SYMBOLS: As all products are different you will need symbols that express your product values, social media marketing, country of origin, recycling, freezer safe, vegan and so much more. All the icons are easy to edit: change colour, size or format. Customise your symbols.
BARCODES: Are you wondering what is the best way to go about barcoding you product? The kit includes Industry Guidelines for the Numbering and Barcoding of Trade Items and the 10 Steps to GS1 Barcode Implementation. If you need advice about your barcodes you can just ask in the Facebook group.
You Are Not Alone
To ensure I can provide you with the very latest best practice for your labels I have a Facebook group. The group allows you to ask questions and get help with your labels. You might like some advice with which colour is best or which font is more readable. The group is great for private unbiased advice.
You get ongoing access to the Facebook support group at NO EXTRA CHARGE.
You can reuse your template for other products. Make as many labels as you like.
The graphics in your label can be used in your website to create a cohesive brand image.
They’re not just food labelling templates: drinks, skin care, non-edible grocery – anything!
In the Facebook group I post tips to help you produce you labels.
Label requirements change constantly so the Facebook group is here to help with your queries.
Labels are a great interim step to printing on flexible film or boxes.
I have to be honest – as the digital world changes constantly and so do labelling laws.
