Catch Weight Product

Catch weight product means a prepackaged product that, because of its nature, cannot normally be portioned to a predetermined quantity. Because of this, it is usually sold in packages of varying quantity [38(1), Consumer Packaging and Labelling Regulations].

Note: While all catch weight products are individually measured, all individually measured commodities are not necessarily catch weight. For example, liquids are not normally catch weight products because they can be measured to predetermined volumes.


Class means very closely related foods. For example, several different brands of candy bars or different varieties of breakfast cereal are foods in a class.
