EU1169 Compliance

Here at Cornershop Online we take our responsibilities very seriously. That is why all of our store will be EU1169 compliant.

What is EU1169?

In brief this is in new legislation that comes into force in December 2014. It states that if a customers orders a pre packaged item online they should have the same information available online as they would instore. For grocery items this would include nutritional data, allergy information, manufacturers information etc.

Come December simply uploading a photograph and a price is no longer legal and stores that are not compliant may be eligible for a fine.

Luckily for stores using our service we already provide the required data and will endeavour to always stay ahead of the game to protect all of our retailers.
