New West German Food Labeling Requirements.
For most products the requirements of the new West German food labeling
ordinance will become effective on December 26, 1983. This means that

products labeled in accordance with the previous requirements must be either
sold out or withdrawn from retail shelves by that date. The new ordinance
noticeably revises and enlarges on the German labeling requirements. The new
provisions, however, are based on the EC directive of food labeling of
December 18, 1978, thereby bringing German provisions in line with those
required by other EC member countries. The two most important changes
introduced by this new German ordinance are: (1) Required labeling of
ingredients in descending order of importance; and (2) Uncoded labeling of
minimum shelf-life dates on most packaged food products marketed. For
products having a minimum shelf-life of over 18 months and produced before
December 26, 1983, the transition period extends until December 31, 1986. We
have learned from trade contacts that German buyers are already requesting
that products they order for delivery in late 1983 be labeled according to the
new requirements.
