Is your food business ready for the upcoming changes to allergen labelling?

From 1 October 2021, the requirements for prepacked for direct sale (PPDS) food labelling will change in Wales, England, and Northern Ireland. The new labelling will help protect consumers by providing potentially life-saving allergen information on the packaging.

Also known as ‘Natasha’s Law’, the changes come following the death of teenager Natasha Ednan-Laperouse from an allergic reaction caused by a packaged baguette which, at the time, did not require allergen labelling.  

To help support food businesses, the Food Standards Agency (FSA) has launched a PPDS Hub featuring useful information including new labelling guidance for PPDS foods and guides that will be helpful to specific sectors including bakery, butchers, fast food and takeaways, mobile sellers, restaurants, cafes and pubs, and schools.

Remote First Aid offer nine online fully compliant food safety training courses, that meets all sector levels, including staff, managers and food supervisors in food manufacturing, retail food sales, hospitality, mobile vendors and those selling loose food products from self-service bars.

If you wish to discuss your organisations food safety training needs and have a demo of our online learning, then drop us a message or call us today.
