Regulatory compliance in product packaging is a complex task that demands continuous adaptation and attention from manufacturers and packagers. The Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) issued revised regulations on Dec 24, 2018, to specify the font size requirements for packages containing an admixture of edible oils.
Decoding FSSAI’s Font Size Regulations
The FSSAI’s revised regulations focus on specific font size requirements for labels on edible oil packaging, which vary based on the pack size:
For packs less than 1 litre: The font size for the label declaration “MULTI-SOURCE EDIBLE OIL” shall not be less than 3 mm, and the font size for the label declaration “Name and Nature of edible oil…per cent. by weight” shall not be less than 2 mm.
For packs between 1 litre and below 5 litres: The font size for the label declaration “MULTI-SOURCE EDIBLE OIL” shall not be less than 4 mm, and the font size for the label declaration “Name and Nature of edible oil…per cent. by weight” shall not be less than 2.5 mm.
For packs of 5 litres and above: The font size for the label declaration “MULTI-SOURCE EDIBLE OIL” shall not be less than 10 mm, and the font size for the label declaration “Name and Nature of edible oil…per cent. by weight” shall not be less than 3 mm.
However, adhering to these regulations can be a challenging task without the right tools in hand. This is where ManageArtworks’ advanced Font Analysis tool comes into play, simplifying the process and ensuring compliance effortlessly.
Harnessing the Power of ManageArtworks’ Font Analysis Tool
ManageArtworks is a comprehensive platform that provides an advanced PDF viewer to view your artwork and perform AI-based automated proofreading. Its sophisticated Font Analysis tool is specifically designed to ensure that your packaging aligns with the new FSSAI font regulations. Here’s how it works:
Start with Readable Text:
First, ensure that your digital file has clear and editable text. This step is crucial as the Font Analysis tool analyses digital files, and the text should be legible and distortion-free.
Choose the Font Analysis Tool:
The font analysis tool displays a list of font sizes along with their font types on the left side of the screen. You can change this to view the list based solely on their font styles too. The tool is designed so that when you click on a font size, all the text on the artwork with that font size will be highlighted. Additionally, you can click on the dropdown beside the font size to see the text with that characteristic.
Find the characteristic of each character
If there is some text on your artwork that is not in readable form, you can use the ‘Manual option.’ This allows you to determine the width and height of each character on your packaging artwork.
Font Size Analysis in Multiple Units:
The Font Analysis tool allows you to change the unit of measurement to view the font size in your preferred way. You can choose between point (pt), millimeter (mm), inch (in), or fractions (in). This allows you to use a familiar system while also cross-checking it with the regulations.
Highlight and Identify Font Size:
Now, let’s say you want to check if the text “MULTI-SOURCE EDIBLE OIL” on a packaging artwork for a 2-litre pack meets the FSSAI regulation of at least 4mm font size. Using the tool, you can highlight this specific text on your artwork. The platform then automatically identifies and displays the font size, thus enabling you to verify its compliance.
This feature displays the font size and style. It also provides details about the cap height, x-height, and text width, giving you a comprehensive font analysis.
Finally, cross-verify the results from the Font Analysis tool with the FSSAI’s font size regulations. This comparison ensures your packaging design is compliant with the new rules.
With the evolving regulatory landscape, the Font Analysis Tool by ManageArtworks empowers businesses to ensure compliance with real-time, accurate results.
