The nutritional fact labelling (also known as the nutrition information panel, and various other slight variations) is required on most pre-packaged foods in North America, United Kingdom and other countries.

The Nutritional Labelling Act, initiated by Ministry of Health Malaysia in year 2003, states that food producers and importers are required to include a specific list of “nutrition facts” on product labels in a pre-defined format. The Ministry of Health Malaysia has amended the Food Regulations on 29 September 2005 to make nutrition labelling compulsory for certain foods, as well as regulate health and nutrition claims.

The nutrients that must be declared on nutrition label are energy, protein, carbohydrate and fat. In addition, total sugars must also be declared for ready-to-drink beverages. In these regulations, ready-to-drink beverages include ready-to-drink soft drink, fruit and vegetable juices,ready-to-drink malted milk and flavoured milk. They do not include alcoholic beverages.
