Product labeling and certifications

Promoting conscious purchasing

Private label products labeled with seals offer consumers additional guidance and confirm our high quality and product standards. 

Further labels indicate the special features of our food and non-food articles. Lidl Cyprus has been selling textiles from Lidl’s own fashion lines since 2019. In addition to the perfect fit and high-quality workmanship, the certifications guarantee skin compatibility, freedom from hazardous substances or an ecological manufacturing method, depending on the relevant label. In addition, electronics, household appliances, toys and furniture are also extensively tested by independent institutes in addition to Lidl's own internal inspections.

Transparent product labeling

We want to make it easy for our customers to make a conscious decision. That’s why we label our products very visibly with information on nutritional values, allergens and sustainability seals. We also go above and beyond legal requirements, for example with the Nutri-Score t,he V-label and Eco-Score.
