trustbox & COVID-19

The corona crisis means that certain ingredients and packaging materials are missing in the food industry and have to be replaced. For this reason, the information on the packaging of certain foods no longer matches the content. In order to ensure the availability of these products and to prevent food waste, the Federal Council passed an amendment to the Food and Consumer Goods Ordinance on April 16, 2020, thereby loosening the declaration rules for foodstuffs tolerated for six months.

However, the condition is that the foodstuffs concerned are provided with a red adhesive that refers to a website. It must be easy to find on this information which information on the food (composition, origin of the ingredients, production method) differs from the facts and why.

Only by using a standardized system and a uniform red sticker can the federal government's goals with regard to informing consumers be achieved.

In order to provide you with the best possible support, GS1 Switzerland provides you with various print templates for the mandatory red adhesive that you can affix to the affected products or on the shelves. This enables consumers to quickly and easily find out about different content - be it via the free website or the free app.

With the use of trustbox, every Swiss company in the food industry is able to meet the changed declaration obligation without additional costs and by means of a uniform, nationwide established and easy-to-use system

trade

By using a uniform, neutral system like trustbox, all companies can put the same red sticker on the packaging. This red sticker or the corresponding poster can also be used by grocery stores because it always looks the same.

private

Consumers always see the same, uniform information and can obtain free, neutral information via the trustbox website or app .

There you will not only see the changed information but everything you want to know about a product.

OFFER FOR NEW CUSTOMERS

  The neutral not-for-profit organization GS1 Switzerland supports its members in the fulfillment of this regulation change and for this purpose waives the usage fee for new trustbox customers completely during this period.

This enables every Swiss company in the food industry to meet the changed declaration obligation without additional costs and by means of a uniform, nationwide established and easy-to-use system.
 

GS1 Switzerland also provides templates of the red adhesive, which can be attached to the affected products. This increases recognition among consumers. The same adhesive is on all affected products and it is possible to find out about all desired products with just one free app or on a free website.

We recommend that you use our template and publish all of your food in trustbox. This ensures that you can react quickly to changes in your products and that consumers can find out about all products.
