Allergy and Intolerance Guidance for Businesses
The UK Foods standards agency has released a guidance document to help business make sense of the new regulations:
New allergy labelling legislation
On 13 December 2014, new legislation (the EU Food Information for Consumers Regulation No. 1169/2011) came into force which requires food businesses to provide allergy information on food sold unpackaged, in for example catering outlets, deli counters, bakeries and sandwich bars. Guidance has been developed to help businesses meet these new requirements and this page will continue to be updated as more support tools are made available. More information about the new European legislation can be found on the European Commission website at the link provided.
