The government is planning to toughen rules on food labelling to increase customers’ safety – and are seeking feedback from retailers.

The new regulation would apply to food allergen information provision between pre-packed foods and foods that are pre-packed for direct sale (for instance: if a retailer uses pre-packed food to prepare a sandwich in their shops and put the product on shelves for sales).

The consultation does NOT cover food not packed (such as meals served in a restaurant or café), and food packed on the sales premises at the consumer’s request (such as a sandwich prepared in front of the customer, cheese or meat sold loose from a delicatessen counter or bread or pies sold at bakeries).
