Ingredient labeling for food products

This September 2013, beCPG improved its labeling module making it more configurable.

If you encounter these issues when calculating the list of ingredients:

  • Your clients have specific labeling rules
  • You want to highlight some ingredients and mask other ones
  • You want to anticipate the INCO regulation

beCPG software can help you by automatically calculating the list of ingredients for your products.

beCPG allows multiple labeling formats set:

The module allows the addition of labeling rules to automatically rework the labeling of products, for example :
  • Formatting rules to display the percentages, to underline or highlight one or several ingredients
  • Aggregation of ingredients (I declare "cooking salt" and "table salt" as "salt")
  • Combining some ingredients (I combine the ingredients "water" and "milk powder" in some proportions and I declare them as "milk reconstituted")
  • I rename the ingredient "wheat flour" to "flour"
  • I declare the ingredient "pectin" as "gelling agent" or "thickening agent"
  • Combining products to declare them as a layer (I combine a "sauce" and "pistachio" and I declare them as a layer)
  • The ability to omit some ingredients according to their quantity (eg: water) and their properties (eg: processing aids)
  • Detail or Not detail some composite raw materials

In addition, manual rewrite of label is possible (partially or totally)
Finally, beCPG manages natively the creation of labels in multiple languages​​.
