The required information and form of food labelling depend on the kind of food and on the position of the food business operator in the food chain. The Federal Swiss Food Act requires information on the country of production and the composition of the food (article 20 Swiss Food Act).
The Ordinance on food labelling and advertising (LKV) regulates in detail, which information shall be provided on food labels, how this information shall be presented, and how food may be advertised. The revision of the THG will facilitate product information in general (“Cassis de Dijon”). The valid strict regulations concerning the indication of the country of production and the raw materials on food will remain.
