FDA issues directives on water labelling

By on

The Food and Drugs Authority (FDA) has issued new labeling guidelines to all commercial water producers in the country.

From October 1, 2019, all bottled and sachet water producers are to ensure that all labelling information on both primary and secondary packaging should be the same.

Additionally, the name and contact details of the franchisee(s), where applicable, should be on the front of the pack or the principal display panel of the secondary and the primary package.

The font size on the product label should be at least half the size of the largest font on the label.

The Chief Executive Officer of the FDA, Mrs Delese A.A. Darko, outlined the guidelines at a stakeholder engagement at the FDA head office in Accra last Monday.

The engagement was for the FDA to interact with the stakeholders and discuss the way forward on the new directives.
