Natasha's Law Allergy Advice
Pre-Prepared foods labelling
To help protect consumers and allergy sufferers, the Government has announced that a new law relating to the packaging of pre-prepared food products is being introduced in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. This new law in known as ‘Natasha’s Law’.
When is the law being introduced?
From 1st October 2021, the way food businesses provide allergen labelling information on Pre- packed for Direct Sale (PPDS) food will change. PPDS food is food which is packaged at the same place it is offered to customers and is in the packaging before it is ordered or selected.
What are the new rules?
Under the new rules, food businesses must clearly display two essential pieces of information on all PPDS food. This includes 1) the name of the food and 2) a full ingredients list, with allergenic ingredients emphasised (for example in bold, italics or a different colour).
This can include salads and sandwiches that customers select themselves and pre-wrapped foods kept behind a counter, as well as some products packaged and sold at mobile or temporary outlets.
