Bartender Labeling Software for Every Industry and Regulation

Bartender EU Food Allergen Labelling (FIC)

EU Food Allergen Labelling (FIC)

EU Regulation N°1169/2011 (Food Information to Consumers, or FIC) was enacted in December, 2014. It requires the ingredient labels of all prepared foods and beverages sold in the European Union to use text formatting to call attention to any allergens the product may contain. The regulation stipulates that bolding, underlining and / or italicizing the text are all acceptable methods of emphasizing the presence of allergens.

BarTender®, the heart of your FIC labelling solution

BarTender® is the global standard in labelling and barcode software, providing unparalleled business-to-business interoperability, and the ability to adapt to any regulation or business demand.

While BarTender has always included everything you need to automate the design and printing of FIC-compliant ingredient labels — no special plug-ins or forms necessary — we’ve created an intuitive, easy-to-use label template to help you meet the FIC requirements. You can use the BarTender FIC label template to design a brand new ingredient label, or simply copy over the allergen formatting elements to your existing ingredient label.

The BarTender EU Allergen label template is completely customizable and features:

  • An editable list of allergens, allowing easy modification should the regulation be updated or you need to comply with other, similar regulations that may be enacted
  • The automated allergen database is translated into six EU languages: Dutch, English, French, German, Italian and Spanish
  • Automated emphasis and formatting of allergens in your ingredient list
  • A simple design interface and superior graphics handling, so you can design labels that match your company’s marketing and production needs, including full color capabilities
  • Seagull Scientific's legendary technical support
  • Characters for all modern writing systems to help you adapt your products’ labels to the multitude of languages across the European Union and beyond


It’s easy to create FIC allergen labels with BarTender. To get started, download the BarTender FIC sample label and technical white paper.
