Generating warning and advisory statements for labels


This article is a quick overview of how to work with warning and advisory statements in Nutrition Labelling.

It is recommended that you declare warning and advisory components for all your raw materials. You do this on the Nutrients tab of the raw material. If you don't set a value for all the warning and advisory components in a raw material, Foodworks displays a warning message at the top of the screen.

For example:


When raw materials are used as ingredients in your recipes and sub recipes, the recipes automatically inherit their warning and advisory components status.

By default, these inherited values are not shown on recipe labels.

To enable the different warning and advisory statements on a recipe label:

  1. Open the sub recipe or recipe.
  2. Select the Labelling tab, then select the Statements subtab.
  3. Select each warning and advisory statement you wish to display on the label. (Tip: Rather than selecting from the dropdown, for each statement you can type the shortcut y for yes or n for no.)

Once selected, the statement automatically appears on the recipe label as per Standard 1.2.3 and Schedule 9 of the Food Standards Code. 

Foodworks suggests which statements to select, based on what is declared in the recipe's ingredients. This is indicated by the Screenshot_2023-03-10_at_12.26.16_pm.png  warning icon. 

For example, on the Statements tab of the following recipe, it is recommended that royal jelly, propolis and quinine be declared on the label: 


Once you've selected the components, a warning and advisory statement is generated and automatically displays on the label.
