The EU and UK regulations regarding Allergens, Food labelling and Nutrition is about to change. The Food Labelling Regulation 1996 (UK) will be replaced by Food Information Regulation (FIR) EU Directive 1169/2011. This regulation introduces a new requirement for mandatory food information to be available to consumers in respect of pre-packed foods, non-pre packed (loose) food offered for sale by distance communication, and such mandatory information must be provided before the purchase is concluded.
This will have enormous implications for food manufactures/processors, packers, importers/exporters, distance sellers, Hospitality industry, Caterers, Health Products, Bakers, etc. We are running training courses to help you to understand and implement the legal requirements to avoid legal action taken by Local Authorities, Trading Standards and Consumers.
