Non-Food Labelling Translation Solutions

As global sales opportunities continue to increase, companies continue to benefit from investment in product imports/exports.

Product safety expectations are continually growing and with the expansion of the general merchandise sector, your product packaging must be clear for consumers to understand and compliant with local regulations.

To succeed across all markets, brands need consumers to trust that they deliver on what they promise. It takes a long time to build that implicit trust with consumers new to the brand. However, it can be destroyed in no time at all if the labelling is not right.

What are Non-Food and General Merchandise?

For a retailer, products fall into one of two categories: Groceries and Food, and Non-Food/General Merchandise (GM).
The main distinction between the two is often looked at in terms of perishability.

In the simplest terms, GM generally refers to products which are non-food. The category spans across goods such as cosmetics, electronics, household appliances and many more. Although GM products have a longer shelf life, there are still stringent laws and regulations surrounding the category. Consumer safety is key, so ensuring your general merchandise labels are clearly understood by your customers is vital.

We have years of experience supporting retail organisations with their import/export packaging. Whether you are a small start-up or a multinational organisation, let us know if you have a project we can help with.

“We are an international company that produces toys and games for children in various ranges: scientific, creative, electronic and educational.
We have been working with K International for over two years and found their work to be exceptional, especially considering we require translations involving different fields within the wide world of toys. They’ve always been very receptive and immediately understand our complex requirements. They have always respected our needs and our deadlines, delivering a very effective and trustworthy service. As far as I’m concerned, professionalism and competence are the most important qualities for those managing translation projects and they have both in abundance.”
