For each certified product, the packaged product must be labeled and marked appropriately before it is sold or exported. All perishable foods must be labeled in French, English, or Malagasy (Madagascar’s official language), indicating the origin, the sell-by or use-by date, the ingredients, the method of storage, the manufacturer’s name and registration number, where appropriate, as well as their intended use. Use of the metric system is compulsory in Madagascar.
