Pin Point Issue 1 - Food Matters - October 2021
Food Matters - What is Natasha’s Law and does it apply to my business?
From 1 October 2021, the requirements for prepacked for direct sale (PPDS) food labelling changed in Wales, England, and Northern Ireland. This labelling helps protect your consumers by providing potentially life-saving allergen information on the packaging.
Any business that produces PPDS food is required to label it with the name of the food and a full ingredients list, with allergenic ingredients emphasised within the list.
Businesses need to check if their products require PPDS labelling and what they need to do to comply with the law.
