Marking honey on the product labels

Every product manufacturer and seller has an obligation to describe his product: its origin and all ingredients, on the packaging. The best solution to do it, it’s to use a custom printed product label. The restrictions may vary according to the country, but in general, all the products on the market have to be labeled. It concerns also the honey. The product label have to include the full name of the product, weight, best before date and of course name and the address of the producer. The weight or volume should be given in the unit proper to the country of sale. It is also important to give the country of production (or group of countries, in some cases it’s acceptable to use the term “produced in EU”).

In case of honey it's important to know that not all the products are allowed to be label as such. The name “honey” can be used only for natural products. For all other products, they need to have an additional information about the ingredients and a special notice that it's “artificial”. In this case, it's necessary to add also the list of ingredients. For the honey that is completely natural you don't have to add the list on honey jar labels.

For the beekeepers it's well--known that some kinds of honey are susceptible to crystallizing. However, the customers can be confused by the unusual look of the honey, and they can think that it's spoiled. In this case, it is a good idea to provide a short explanation on the honey jar label that the process of crystallization is normal and the honey is still good to consumption.
