On the move snacks are growing in popularity, and recent legislation developments mean that there is an increased need for messaging and branding on Retail Ready Packing (RRP) such as boxes and shelf packaging. Coded information on RRP should include expiry date details and batch codes for traceability. The legislation given by the EU Country of Origin Labelling Regulations in December 2014 states that food labelling should be 'clear, comprehensible and legible', as a result of which there is a lesser space on the packaging for promotion. Food labelling requirements have led to RRP, such as boxes for retail shelves, now including branded messages, standardised logos, and iconography to help products stand out on the shelf.
