On the 13th December 2014, the EU Food Information for Consumers Regulation came into force. This legislation sets out how food should be labelled and how food allergens should be declared, whether the food is pre-packed or loose.
Attached below are links to various documents and guidance that will be able to assist food business operators in complying with this new regulation and we will keep these webpages updated as new guidance and advice is published.
If you are unable to find the answer to a specific question, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or telephone the Public Protection Team on 01225 396759.

Allergy Posters for Businesses:
The Food Standards Agency have produced posters for businesses to display, that encourage customers to ask about the allergens in the foods/drinks served.
Please be aware that these posters are an extra resource for businesses to use, and they are separate to the legal obligation to display allergen information to customers.
