The same nutrition labelling requirements and exemptions that apply to all foods also apply to dairy products. For example, prepackaged individual portions of dairy products that are served by a restaurant or other commercial enterprise with meals or snacks (e.g. portions of butter) are exempt from declaring a Nutrition Facts table on the label. See Nutrition Labelling Exemptions for more details.

Some milk products sold in refillable glass containers are always exempt from carrying a Nutrition Facts table. Please refer to the appropriate section for further information.

Serving Size

Cheese requires a consumer friendly measure as part of the serving size statement. Options include "per x mm slice", "per x cm3", or for soft cheeses "per tablespoon" or "per x ml".

Refer to Serving Size for more information.
