Food labels and frozen food labels are required for pre-packaged and fresh food sold in Hong Kong.

1. Name of the Food
2. List of Ingredients
3. Indication of “use by”” or “best before” date
4. Statement of Special Condition for Storage or Instruction for Use
5. Name and Address of Manufacturer of Packer
6. Count, Weight or Volume of Food
This information must be presented clearly using a Food Label, Frozen Food Label or sticker. Some of the information must strictly following a format, such as the “best before” or “use by” dates are used differently and must be applied accordingly. Food labels and Frozen Food labels must present correct information as incorrect labeling or false labeling can lead to prosecution from the department of Public Health and Municipal Services Ordinance. Any food label or frozen food label that either
a) Falsely describes the food
b) Calculated to mislead its substance, quality, or nature
can be guilty of an offence which upon conviction can be liable to a maximum fine of $50,000 and 6 months imprisonment.
