Food Labelling Services comments:

There are immediate changes required to country of origin rules, the EU organic logo and the EU emblem.

As of 29th March, the following will apply:

Country of Origin: UK food should not be labelled as originating from the EU. 

Organic logo: The EU organic logo should not be used on any UK organic products until the UK & EU reach an equivalency agreement.

EU Emblem: UK manufacturers should not use the EU emblem on goods produced in the UK

Supplier name and address: If the product is to be traded in the UK, post Brexit an UK address for a manufacturer, packer, distributor, importer or vendor will be required in addition to the address in the EU. Likewise all products sold in the EU should declare the name and postal address of a manufacturer, packer, distributor, importer or vendor within the EU. 

Defra has said that once the UK leaves the EU, there is the potential for all Food Labelling to changed.
