When a catch weight product (definition) is sold to a retailer by a manufacturer, processor or producer, the retailer is responsible for applying the net quantity declaration before offering the food for sale to consumers, unless an exemption applies.

The Average System of Net Quantity determination section outlines the information on tolerances including those for products which are packaged at the retail level of trade.

Refer to the Net Quantity section of the Industry Labelling Tool for additional information.
