New Allergen Labelling Law Due
New allergen labelling laws are due to be introduced by DEFRA and the Food Standards Agency on 13th December. These new Food Information Regulations will now require food outlets to provide allergy information on food sold unpackaged, and there will also be changes to allergy labelling requirements on prepackaged food too.
This means that coffee shops, bakeries, conference facilities and a whole host of other businesses serving food and snacks will have to comply with the new regulations.
In order to make the process simpler, the FSA are offering advice to businesses, which can be found on their website here.
