that would depend completely on the SELLING countries regulation


In Canada, legally, only English and French are allowed, but depending on where you live/do your shopping, you will find Spanish/Cantonese etc.  but that doesn't mean they are legal, just means that they entered the country without Canadian food inspection agency inspection


I have also seen packaging where a label has been applied with English/French ingredients and NFT, but not in about a decade

Please stop referring to me as Sir/sirs

In the US the label must comply with 21 CFR 101. This regulation does not allow for alternate formats. It does allow multiple languages, but all required information must be listed in all languages used.
