UK Allergen Labeling Requirements

UK Allergen Labeling Requirements

New allergen labeling requirements in the UK will take effect on October 1, 2021.  The new requirements state that all food prepacked for direct sale must bear a label with an ingredient list and if the food contains any of the 14 legislated allergens, these must be clearly identified on the label.  The Food Information Regulations allow Member States to make a distinction between prepackaged and non-prepackaged foods in how mandatory allergen information is provided to consumers.
